[New York]: The Saturday Evening Post, 1956.
Single sheet, 10.5" x 13.5," printed on thick stock in pink and black. A Near Fine example with typical age-toning, slightly bumped corners. A vintage UFO-themed magazine stand lobby card for The Post of March 10, 1956, which reads, "'Eyewitness reports' from travelers to outer space[.] Read 'He Runs Flying Saucer Headquarters' This week in The Saturday Evening Post." The article, written by John Kobler, profiled James S. Rigberg, editor of Flying Saucer News, co-president of the associated club, and owner of a UFO and occult-themed bookstore in New York City. Kobler wrote:
A small, mild, balding man of forty-two, with pronounced psychic leanings, Rigberg operates his store six days a week, from eight A.M. to ten P.M. chiefly as a clearinghouse for interplanetary intelligence. Assisted by his wife, he keeps a file of reports on unearthly spacecraft, as telephoned in or written to him by sky watchers the county over – he gets some 200 reports a week. [...] To encourage earthbound travel by visitors from other planets, Rigberg maintains a standing offer of a free one-year subscription to Flying Saucer News to any of them who will claim it in person.
A rare piece of ephemera from the golden era of ufology with great Jetsons-style graphics. Makes a great gift for the operator of your local flying saucer headquarters. Item #140939673
