Tom Mix Comics Group (Ralston-Purina Co., 1940-42). One of the most desirable prizes in the world of Western comics collecting is this series of comics featuring the early cowboy star Tom Mix. They were available as a mail-in offer from the cereal company Ralston-Purina, who were sponsors of the very popular Tom Mix radio program. This group gathers together all twelve hard-to-find issues: Book #1 (GD-, with a 1/32 page coupon out), Book #2 (GD-, coupon clipped), Book #3 (GD, coupon out), Book #4 (VG-), Book #5 (VG-), Book #6 (VG-), Book #7 (VG-), Book #8 (VG), Book #9 (GD/VG), Book #10 (title changes to Tom Mix Commandos Comics, with World War II stories; VG), Book #11 (VG), and Book #12 (VG). Most of these were mailed with white tape which is still on the right side of the covers, although some have the tape removed. This is a rare chance to get all of these great Western collectibles at one time. Approximate Overstreet 2004 value for group = $1,400.
