Wow, I should send away for that.

This ad was in Archie Annual #26 (1975). But lest you suspect this was some fly-by-night operation, they were still peddling the same spiel 15 years later:

That one was in the classified section of the Chicago Tribune (May 13, 1990). Almost identical language...without the odd art. Although note that they've moved their mail drop from Illinois to New Jersey...
