Here we have another ad for sales – kids sell cheesy stuff in exchange for cash or fabulous prizes!

“FREE CATALOG SHOWS PRIZES for EARTHLINGS.” What, are they planet-ist? No prizes for Martians, huh? Jerks!

Can it Really Be Considered a Prize if You’re Earning It?

Ah, to be young – so much stuff you want, but so few options for getting the money for that stuff. Well, Olympic Sales Club is here to help! Just look at all the fabulous prizes you could earn by selling cards and gifts!

So pretty much everything on here is stuff that would appeal to kids/teenagers… except possibly the crock-pot. I mean, really, what kid would choose a crock-pot over toys or video games??

And just for the record, I had a Coleco Telstar as a kid (and still have it, in fact!) – I think getting it for a few bucks at a rummage sale is a much better deal than having to sell 19 boxes of greeting cards!
