Secret Wars Three-Pack!

Shield aside, this Captain America figure in the three pack (also sold separately) was the most accurate Cap figure produced for a looooong time! Well, okay, Mego's 12" Cap was the best. But this was the best we had in the 1980s!

Marvel Comics 1976 Calendar!

I've always been kind of amazed there were only two Bicentennial-related items featuring Captain America... the tabloid (that I posted an ad for yesterday), and this calendar!

Captain America's Bicentennial Battles Ad!

mravel_08_76_02

This was one of the most awesome tabloids Marvel put out, in my opinion... Mister Buda (later known as the Contemplator, one of the Elders of the Universe) sends Cap on a journey through America's history, written and drawn by Jack Kirby!

Somewhere in South America, the 1960s Marx Marvel Super-Heroes figures were bootlegged, but the bootlegs were painted, as seen above!

Secret Wars Cassette Tape Recorder!

In the early 1980s, Marvel's mini-series "Secret Wars" was just the beginning... the "Secret Wars" branding was used for a whole variety of products, such as the cassette tape recorder above which features a figural Captain America decoration!
