Posted By: <b>DD</b><p>Yes, although it is in rough shape. It belonged to my brother from when he was a kid. It now resides in our safety deposit box.

Posted By: <b>Paul</b><p>Why is this one so rare? I thought it was specifically offered on the wrappers of the 63 Topps cards. Even if it was only offered on the high number packages, you'd still think quite a few kids would have ordered them. It doesn't seem like it should be any rarer than other mail away premiums like the R309-1 Goudeys.

Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>I think it may have been a Bazooka comic premium. Gotta check but I believe that is the case.<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>I just found a reference in a Mr. Mint auction from 3/1/96 indicating the ad appeared on high number wax wrapper in 1963. Take that with a grain of salt but the Mintman did know a little bit about the product he auctioned.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Yes, and believe it or not Mr. Mint has just "discovered" 4,000 more masks that he's selling.
