OLD SUPER HERO MASK

FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #35


My hand was faster than a speeding bullet when I grabbed this old super hero mask off of the shelf at an antique store. No, it's not a fake artifact from the Watchmen movie, nor is it an old movie serial prop. My guess is that it's from the 1940's or early 1950's. Probably some type of give away premium that was handed out at a movie theater or some other venue.

I’m glad to own it and it seems Hugo Man of a Thousand Faces enjoys wearing it.

That's a total score! Love it! It looks like it's cloth or something besides paper. I would wear that out for sure.

For some reason it reminds me of Naugas!

I so wanted a Hugo when I was a kid.
