Amazing Rubber Masks

When I stumbled upon the And Everything Else Too blog yesterday I wasn't prepared for the onslaught of pop culture goodness that I was about to be exposed to. While there was post after amazing post filled scans of old school commercial illustrations,  I was immediately struck by these pages come from the Chicago based World Wide Diamond Co., catalog...

 The Illustrations of the Topstone masks are awesome and feature a handful of lesser known masks like the "Saber Tooth Space Man" and "Goony" that never appeared in the pages of Warren Publications. Based on the illustration, I can only speculate as to exactly what you would get with the Frankenstein rubber mask. Was it a Topstone, or a Don Post? Who knows.
