Superbowl Sunday Special! Sports Celeb Comic Book Ads

What it is, sports fans! Seems that everyone digs Superbowl Sunday, dunnit? Even non-football fans get in on the act if for no other reason to dig on the ca-raazee commercials that are sprung on us during the Big Game. That got Ol' Groove to thinking about how during the Groovy Age, some of our fave sports stars (some of whom are still famous, others, sadly, now infamous) would actually star in comicbook ads (often as comicbook characters!) to sell us on body building, batting practice, basketballs, and even boots. Ol' Groove always thought those ads were kinda far out, so I thought I'd share a few of 'em with ya today. You know, to give you something to do between naps, parties, time-outs, and possible wardrobe malfunctions. Enjoy!
