Vintage Boys' Life Magazine - September 1962
for item Mag304
This would make a great gift for someone born at that time or perhaps represent a milestone event in a person's life.
In this issue there are many great advertisements. A Chrysler Corporation ad has a drawing of a young man holding a set of car keys. The top of the ad reads, "First solo in the family car." It goes on to say:
"Your state says you're old enough to drive. You have a driver"s license. Your dad says you can take the car. You're on your own - no big person to tell you what to do, how to do it, where to go, how fast to go there. Turn the key - Put 'er in Drive . . . Step on the gas . . . . and let her roll. What are we waiting for?"
The advertisement goes on to explain the need for teenagers to drive safely. But if memory serves me well, those of us who got the car lived by a certain mantra. See paragraph above!
You will see a nice advertisements for football gear by Rawlings and Wilson. Also, a very nice full page ad for Schwinn bicycles - only $39.95 for the Schwinn Typhoon. Other models listed with prices up to $132.00 which was pretty pricey in 1962!
THE BEST THING IN THIS ISSUE:
One full page of the passage the Twenty-Third Psalm in beautiful type and a very pretty floral motif down the full length of the left side and across the top. It is tempting to keep it for framing!
Some things you'll learn:
How to attach a can of talc to your shoe for tracking. This will work since birds will eat those bread crumb trails! How to make castle gate book ends. First Aid for snake bite.
Back to school clothes. You be styling in these 1962 duds! Big league photographer (with some photographs of sporting events). Inside the Peace Corps.
The magazine is in good condition, however, the inside pages have yellowed, but are not brittle. Some pages have dog-ears from normal wear.
