Throw your voice for 50 cents!

While I remember the "classic" ads for ventriloquism products in old comic books and magazines as a kid, I had forgotten about this one...found it in a box of my stuff that was at my moms house. It's for a product called the "Venthrillo." The ad was in a "House of Mystery" DC comic book from 1973. Just look at all of the amazing things it can do...all for 50 cents. Sold through the Abracadabra Magic Shop in New Jersey (in this ad anyway). And notice the target audience...

Now THAT brings back some memories! I wasn't into ventriloquism then, but I remember seeing the add in some of my favorite comic books. Thanks for sharing, Lee.
