COLLEGEVILLE MAJOR MATT MASON HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Copyright 1968--first year available 1969

Collegeville made a kids Halloween costume featuring Major Matt Mason that remains a prized collectible to this day. It featured a simple two color design of Matt riding the Space Sled and a more detailed four color mask of Matt Mason's helmet, complete with the number 3 insignia on top. These often fetch $300 dollars or more at auction now.

Thanks to John Eaton for this photo.
