The National Youth Sales Club was a mail-order sales program for children in the 1960’s, advertised in Boy’s Life magazine and promoted by baseball star Mickey Mantle.  Children would sell boxes of greeting cards in exchange for cash or prizes.  Ads for the program included colorful illustrations of prizes, including accordions, tape recorders, telescopes, and bicycles.  Children would recieve an "official membership badge" after selling 12 boxes of greeting cards.
