Marvel No-Prize Envelope

This is a Marel No-Prize envelope. These were empty envelopes that were sent out by Marvel Comics to readers that pointed out errors in the various comic books they produced, hence the name No-Prize. The empty envelope itself was actually the prize. They no longer do this anymore since it cost too much money and I wasn’t able to win one when they were doing it. I figured just buying it would be the next best thing. I still think the idea was a cool one.

    This is actually quite brilliant, sending out a prize that’s a “No-Prize”.

    Hard for me to imagine that Marvel stopped sending No-Prizes because it cost too much. How much money did they have to make before they could justify printing up a bunch of empty envelopes?
