Every now and then, when I'm saving photos from eBay auctions to post on my various blogs, I come across a lot like this one -- an FF Lancer paperback, a Marx Toys Hulk statue, and the Marvel Stamp Set from France! This means, of course, that when sorting the photo in Flickr, stuff like this ends up in just about every Marvel folder I have!
Anyway, it's the stamp set we're interested in at this blog! As you can see, Spider-Woman was included in this set, and pretty prominently, too (Spidey's the only Marvel character bigger than her on the box!). I didn't realize just how much merchandising was done of Jessica Drew's alter ego! Obviously, the same can't be said for other distaff variations of Marvel characters like Ms. Marvel and the She-Hulk...
Here's a good look at the Spider-Man stamp in the set:
And other photos of the set:
These photos came from two different auctions, by the way!
Not the Marvel Value Stamps album, this is a whole 'nother animal! Sometime in the 1970s, this manufacturer got the idea that there was a potential market for collectible stamps that weren't actual postage stamps (maybe they thought comics fans and stamp collectors would want 'em, I don't know). This album, long with several themed packets of stamps were sold -- and there were DC versions, too. Apparently, while the stuff didn't sell that great at the time, they're valued amongst collectors these days -- comic collectors, anyway!
This is kind of a weird toy.... looks like a big version of the paper-type "film" rolls of the cheaper "tv viewer" or "cartoon viewers" I've seen of other characters, except that you can color and recolor these!

Recently, someone had left a comment claiming that I stole photos from their site. I don't know why they made this claim, as I've been pretty open about the fact that my photos on all my blogs have come from eBay auctions.
What makes this claim particularly specious is that all the photos on that person's site have a watermark that isn't on the photos they specifically complained about. I may be good at Photoshop, but I'm not so good I can remove a watermark that big and restore the image that it was over!
If anybody wants to claim they have ownership over a photo of mine, they can leave a comment saying so -- and provide some proof about it, too (like, say, providing the direct link to where on their website the photo was supposedly "stolen" from).
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
