MAJOR MATT MASON COLLECTOR'S TRADING CARD
Copyright 1997--first available April 1997.

The first Major Matt Mason item sold by Mattel in over 25 years appeared without fanfare in Mattel’s Toy Club shops in California and Texas in early 1997. Apparently, the card was released mainly to protect the company's trademark on the Matt Mason line, after numerous legal battles with people attempting to use the name.

This card was only available for a limited time in 1997 and sold for $.25 cents each. However, each person was limited to the purchase of just two cards per visit and this applied to mail orders as well. Due to the limited run of these cards, they have already sold at auctions for over $30 each!

PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
Sold as is.

DEALER CATALOG SPECS:
Sold individually only through Mattel Toy Club Stores.

VARIATIONS:
None.

COMMENTS:
This is a great looking card that makes a handsome addition to any Matt Mason collection.

ALSO INCLUDED IN:
