Color me insensitive, but even in the middle of the latest DARK SHADOWS craze, I can't see a thousand bucks for a Barnabas Collins Magic Slate (Whitman, 1969), can you? Granted there may only be a handful left in existence, but even the most hardcore fans I'm sure wouldn't miss these if they disappeared off the face of the earth . . . would they?

WOW, but does the accompanying photo bring back some memories!
I'd TOTALLY forgotten about these from when I was a kid, but now I can vividly recall feverishly drawing all sorts of monsters on mine. Usually while we were on car trips of some sort or another.
I don't know how many of the DARK SHADOWS ones I went through while they were on the market, but I think it's safe to say that if I owned one, then I owned a dozen. Maybe more. They certainly weren't built to last long for your 39 cents now were they?
Can you imagine if I'd somehow had the foresight to stash away a couple/few?!! LOL
