But not to worry. I actually have one purchase to share from a few weeks ago... and a few other recent pickups that are semi-related to that flea market find.
Purchase #1: 1981 McDonald's Muppets Glasses $7
Back in February, I found this set of McDonald's glasses which promoted The Great Muppet Caper:
I've never been a huge fan of the Muppets, but I remember owning a couple of these when I was a kid. The vendor was this cute elderly lady who was selling off her keepsakes. We talked for about five minutes and I knew I needed to buy something from her.
Now I just need to figure out what to do with them. Should 43 year old men really use cups with puppets on them?
This is a huge addition to my Star Wars collection. I was a little disappointed to find out that Topps didn't have Frank Oz sign these... but oh well. Hard signed Yoda cards don't grow on trees.
I also picked up this 1981 Burger King Star Wars/The Empire Strikes Back set that contains several cards of the pint sized puppet. Here are two of my favorites:
And for those who aren't into hand puppets, here's your obligatory baseball card of the day:
Gotcha! More hand puppets.
Happy Friday and sayonara!
Thanks Todd for the awesome Golden Eagles team checklist. I'll be showing off more singles from your care package in future posts.
