#6361 XRG - 1 REENTRY GLIDER WITH MAJOR MATT MASON
Copyright 1968--first year available 1969

This version of the glider card was identical in size and shape as the #6360 card. This time the glider comes with Major Matt Mason attached under a blister bubble in the upper right hand corner replacing the picture of the five pilots of the #6360 card.

The graphics are identical except for the colors are made up of "yellow", "red", "orange" and "black" shades. I only know of three of these cards held by other collectors. This is perhaps the rarest Major Matt Mason accessory card. I have been fortunate to hold one of these in person. Quite an impressive site to behold for a true MMM fan / collector.

Our thanks to Tomart Magazine for providing this rare photo.
