Underoos Ad

This locally-designed ad for Underoos ran in newspapers as the Christmas season approached, year unknown.

It was sent to me by F.O.A.M. member Brian Heiler, who is a master at finding obscure stuff like this. Thanks Brian!

I'm not familiar with the Eiband's chain (assuming it is--was?--a chain), so I don't know where in the country this ad ran. Anyone out there remember shopping there?

Interesting--Spider-Man is listed as Spiderman, yet Aquaman is listed as Aqua Man. Ah, the days before style guides!

Cool stuff! I Had the Aquaman set and a Robin set. I remember my brother had ET and Yoda! hahahaha

I had Aquaman, Captain Marvel (SHAZAM!) and Boba Fett!

I remember owning Aquaman underoos and liking them a lot. The colors were just so unique, I think.

I had Superman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Spider-Man, Hulk (which was a lame white t-shirt with Hulk running on it) and Captain America. Somehow, my Captain America and Aquaman shirt survived into my adulthood (thanks to my Mom saving EVERYTHING) and my son got to wear them!

I had Aquaman repeatedly. As they wore out, I replaced them. I also had Robin and Superman.

Anyone know who the third girl outfit is? I know Wonder Woman and Supergirl (I think my cousin had both, plus maybe Batgirl)m but the third looks kinda like the HUlk one, with a picture of someone, but I can't tell who.

Its either Josie or Veronica--the art looks pretty Archie-ish from here.

I think those are records pictured, so my money's on Josie.

Oh I didn't even read the tiny print at the bottom. Veronica and Josie?! What strange choices!

I had the wonderwoman and BatGirl set, and loved them!
