This was before my time – not sure where this one came from either. The first one I remember was from late 1975, which featured the U.S. bicentennial parade floats on the cover (I’ll see if I can find that one and scan it too).

After this Minnesota winter, I could really use another visit to Anaheim. More page scans after the jump.
