Having never been an avid reader of Creepy or Eerie comics, I mainly recognized the two horror hosts
as really cool Don Post masks. They haven't been catalogued together since the 1970s >



All my favorite shops carried them back then, displayed singly and as a team. Can you make out that price tag? Only $14.95!

      

They were produced with the same quality as DP's high-end masks but retailed for less than half as much.
By summer of 1975, I'd adopted my first pair >

     

Additional copies of each character moved in later on. For years to come, we were just one big happy family.

Last Sunday I scored a few masks from the estate sale of our late friend Gory Glenn.
One was his ToTS Beast of Blood which I now consider one of the top three scariest masks in my collection!

       

Back in the 1990s Paper Magic Group offered a line of masks depicting Universal's classic monsters >



Glenn had the good taste to acquire a few of them including The Mummy, my favorite of the series.
His copy now resides in my collection. That thing on top that looks like a visor is actually its attached header card
showing the Universal Monsters logo, care and safety info, and the retail price: only $14.99 >

       

There was one more mask score from the weekend, related to the above character, which I think was
one of Glenn's prized pieces. I can't reveal it just yet because it's getting sent off for a custom finish.
Once completed, I'll check back in to scare you with it!

Sorry to hear of his passing, I was not aware of that.
