#5055 MAN IN SPACE MAJOR MATT MASON VINYL WALLET
Copyright 1966--first year available 1967

Rugged vinyl illustrated with boyhood heroes! Features include mystic slate and stylus, picture pockets, coin holder, snap flap pockets and billfold compartment.

This is another rare non-toy item with graphics similar to the 3-ring vinyl notebook binder. Matt is space walking above the moon. Black and white graphics on bluish green background. . My space tokens would have surely been secure with one of these.

Thanks to collector Mark Perez for sending us this wonderful photograph of this rare item!
