Comic Book Ads: More Golden Age Wheaties!

Time for another gallery of comic book ads from the Golden Age, and this is yet another installment of Wheaties! Fortunately, it'll be the last, because even I'm getting tired of them!

The Wheaties ad train just keeps on going and going, doesn't it? Here's one final series of ads that were run, although they didn't last as long:

While this ad still prominently features a sports star (in this case, Phil Rizzuto, one of the few people I've recognized in these ads at all), this one also compares the pro athlete with the kids who might be eating this stuff! Note that the boy and the girl are positioned like the drawing of Phil! Also note on the bottom of the ad the promotion for the Disney character masks on the back of the boxes.

Here's three more of those ads... and guess what? That's all the Wheaties ads! Next month, it's Sam Spade for Wildroot Cream Oil!
