1976 Ben Cooper Halloween Catalog

1976 Ben Cooper Halloween Catalog

Ben Cooper was the leading manufacturer of Halloween costumes and Novelties in the United States during the 1970s.

    Great post.
    Again, it's interesting to see again how DC wasn't allowed to use the Captain Marvel moniker on any of their marketed stuff.
    BTW, I wonder if Emmett Kelly ever saw a penny of that hobo mask money.
