Comic Book Ads: Wheaties, Part 4!

Continuing a look at the Wheaties ads from Golden Age comics (can you believe it was December the last time I posted these?)! As noted before, Wheaties really hit their stride in their comic book ads when they started using famous athletes in their comics ads -- this is a precursor of sorts to when they started featuring athletes on the boxes of the cereal. Here's some more ads:

wheaties_0633
wheaties_0640
wheaties_0646
wheaties_0652
wheaties_0663
wheaties_0687
wheaties_0692
wheaties_0712
wheaties_0719
I have to admit, I have no idea who any of these people are, not following sports myself!

Believe it or not, this isn't the end of these! There'll be more in the next issue!
