Are you a baby boomer? If you are, chances are you remember the Partridge Family and David Cassidy.
My Aunt bought some old comics at a rummage sale recently, and three of them were Partridge Family. This issue from Charlton Comics is dated January 1972, and the price was 20 cents. (I was in tenth grade in 1972.) I know I watched the show faithfully but I don't think I had any Partridge Family comics.
If you haven't looked at a vintage comic book lately you may be surprised by the advertisements inside a comic.
On the inside cover, Colonial Studios, is selling thoroughbred paintings for your home or office. I would not have been interested, but my sister might have.
And who wouldn't shell out a whole buck for a concert tour book with more than 50 photos of David Cassidy?
And for another buck, I could have had Susan Dey's advice on boys, beauty and popularity. Heaven knows that would have been helpful!
Just 75 cents for the Official Tiger Beat Partridge Issue Number 2.
Here's the comic book characters from the Partridge Family. Wasn't Danny annoying?
For just another dollar you can receive Susan Dey's Private Journal.
Of course there are posters available with David and his amazing shag haircut.
Also rings on the inside back cover. Military men's credit is good for genuine diamonds wedding rings. (Just what was the average age of a comic book reader?)
Yep, David wants YOU in his fan club! I don't think I ever joined any fan clubs. Did you?
Here is the February 1972 issue with Romance for Keith.
This issue has David Cassidy LUV stickers for what else a buck! The 70's were the LUV years.
More pics of David...
And this is the March 1972 issue of the Partridge Family comics. Remember the old school bus that the family toured in?
I love nostalgia. The Partridge Family is a fun memory from my youth!
