Mattel #6347 Space Travel Pak

#6347 Space Travel Pak Card Front

The Space Travel Pak contained items already found on Flight Carded figures and other Paks. It seems that Mattel could get more bang for the buck by offering the same items, especially the Space Sled and Jet Propulsion Pak, for use by the other astronauts. Good move, as this pack proved extremely popular and is still much sought after today.

The Space Travel Pak included: Space Sled with Control Handle; Jet Propulsion Pak; Chemical Decontamination Gun and Space Labels.

The Package reads: "Space Sled and Personal Jet Propulsion Back Pak Fly Astronauts on Special Space Missions! Chemical Gun Decontaminates While Neutralizing Radioactivity" 


The Card is full-color, process-printed and is 8 1/2" x 12" x 1" Copyright is 1968.

John's Notes:

Components in this set appear as parts of other carded sets - I think this was a way to reuse existing molds for a new accessory card.

This was one of the first carded MMM accessories I ever bought. Seems a case was found some time in the mid-90's, so there are several really minty examples available. I bought one of these, for a rather exorbitant amount, only to accidentally knock the card off a shelf and ding one corner. Moving some items on a crowded shelf, two carded accessory packs  headed for the floor. I caught one, but the Space Travel Pak hit pretty hard. It's funny that I always took the card for granted until I damaged it.
