Dusty Rhodes Promotes Stanback Powders (1970s)

A sure cure what ails you, according to the American Dream anyway.

In the mid-late 1970s, Stanback hired Dusty Rhodes to be a TV spokesman for their Stanback Headache Powders. The commercial aired regularly during Georgia Championship Wrestling on WTCG-17 (later WTBS).

The image in the graphic above was lifted from a 8mm home movie shot directly off the TV screen during that time.

The ad's tag line was a familiar one during those years; "Snap back with Stanback!"
