Yeah... it's only worth about $3.00! Now, if it were in color... maybe $9.99 but not B&W. Sheesh!

"This is an original advertisement from a 1964 publication. The ad measures 5" x 13" and is in excellent condition, ready to be matted and framed."

Yes, I would like to hang that in my den, next to my psychedelic poster.

I would have hoped that the orugunal publication would be worth more money than a stupid ad.

Unfortunately sellers have figured out that cutting up magazines and selling them piecemeal is often more profitable than selling the magazine whole. The same goes for old atlases, the maps sold individually are often worth more than the complete book.

People collect ads and maps.

I can imagine some instances where selling the ads rather than the magazine would be justified. If the magazine was already in bad shape, the cover missing, for instance, or if some child in 1965 had cut out a lot pictures for an art project....

....or if a kidnapper had cut out letters for a ransom note.

In 1964 it was legal to advertise all sorts or stupid and dangerous products. As I recall, the Flinstones used to shill for a cigarette company. I doubt that the Consumer Product Safety Commission would allow Jockey to advertise like this today.

CPSC = OK

Keeping fit

I saw your ad asking “Are you comfortable being” and thought that I should tell you my story. I was a former fat person at 293 lbs. and currently weigh 163 lbs. I have learned the importance of exercising daily in order to maintain my weight. I got laid off a while back so to keep busy while job searching I exercise about 35-40 hours/week. On an average week, I do 12-14 hours of indoor cycling, 8 hours on the stair master, 14 hours on the arc trainer/elliptical machine, 3 hours of weight lifting, 1 hour stretching and 2 hours of squash. I can say that my Jockey underwear holds up with my busy day and is extremely comfortable.

LOOKS TO ME LIKE THE CPSC REALLY KNOWS WHAT ADS TO ALLOW

Nowhere does he say that he engages in the dangerous and unhealthy practice of wearing underwear under bicycle shorts.

Emphasis removed to help DnvrFox look a little less hysterical

I didn't know you also had dyslexia!

Certainly the ability to come to a logical conclusion from facts presented in an article is an important intellectual function!

Obviously, they wouldn't be bragging about NOT wearing underwear in a Jockey ad!

Dnvr, Dnvr, Dnvr...

I don't mind you taking pokes at me, but making fun of the learning disabled is just wrong...the way putting undies under bike shorts is wrong.

As for logical conclusions, the author of that screed implies that he wears underwear, but nowhere states nor even implies that he wears padded bike shorts.

UN
Nowhere.

It is obvious that you are not able to come to the proper conclusion using formal logic:

To wit -

1. This very bright person cycles indoors for 12-14 hours per week.

2. This very bright person knows enough to wear Jockey shorts

3. This very bright person is extremely comfortable in what he wears.

4. Obviously, if riding on a cycle, this person will be wearing appropriate attire - after all, he is very bright! And that attire would have to be padded biking shorts. Otherwise, he would not be very bright, but we have already clearly established that he IS very bright.

But, one of the characteristics of folks who don't know enough to wear undies under their padded biking shorts (these are the same not-so-brilliant folks who carry vinegar and woolite and pray to the sun god to kill the bacteria in their mobile petri dishes) is that they have a problem makng logical connections. That is proven, ipso facto, by the stated fact that they do NOT wear undies under their biking shorts.

So, there you have it. A fully logical PROOF of the premise that wearing undies under padded biking shorts is logically correct.

End of discussion. What more is there to say?

Very bright? This pathetic panty boy can't hold a job. He spends 40 hours a week in the gym. He doesn't even ride a bicycle outdoors. In his spare time, he writes fan letters to underwear manufacturers. Oh, yeah, he's a mental giant--a regular Einstein.

UN
He probably has a note tacked to his mirror that says "Yellow=Front. Brown=Back." to help him put his whitey-tighteys on the right way.
