Junior Sales Club of America Cards
Created in: 1956?
- This advertiser published in at least eight different publishers, such as, DC, Western, Archie, Dell, Harvey and more, across more than 140 series from 1956 through 1977. Also known as JSCA or J.S.C.A., it was based in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Uncertain if this company is the same as the Junior Sales Club of Topeka, Kansas that began advertising in comics in 1940. Either company used the business model of offering "prizes" in return for greeting cards sales made.
Ad titles can include, "Junior Sales Club Batting Tips", "Mickey Mantle Goes to Bat for Billy Bikeless", or "Nationally Famous Prizes for You", etc. Almost universally 1 page, but can be 2 pages or rarely as 1/3rd page. It should be used in advertisement sequences.
