Halloween 3 Masks and Nightmare III Ad

As a mask loving kid in the early 80s, there was nothing more exciting than a full color mask ad on the back of a Fangoria or Starlog! How little did we all know how valuable each of these masks featured on the back of Fangoria #21 would be today.  The Don Post Halloween 3 masks, based on the "Hagatha" and "Ghost Skull" masks, and the third original design "Jack-O-Lantern" always command a premium whenever they pop up on ebay.

It's been quite some time since I remember seeing a Distortions Nightmare III being made available in the auction circuit.  I believe the original intent was that the each copy in the Nightmare series would be limited to 250 copies, but I'm not sure if that many copies were actually released.

  1. The Halloween 3 masks are one of my favorite sets. It's nice to see how they have regained popularity over the years.
