5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
5 Awesome Things on eBay this week
Cool British Starsky and Hutch Pin (eBay Link) –
This pin reminds me of the 70s Superhero fridge magnets I collect and adore. If there is a fridge magnet equivalent to this, it will be mine! This I swear!
Billy Carter “I shot J.R.” T-Shirt (eBay link) –
Look I found the most dated reference clothing ever. If you wear this, expect at least once to explain a) Who Billy Carter is and b) the TV Show Dallas. I recommend using “Who Shot Mr. Burns” as a teaching aid with anyone under 30.
Remco Fist Faces (eBay Link)-
Remco in the 1960s was one of those companies that really took chances with concepts. This toy is like a “Make your own Senior Wences” kit, which you could probably just put together with stuff around the house. The name “Fist Faces” though, m’waaaaa Chef’s Kiss.
How to draw Monsters and spaceships books (eBay Link)–
I don’t think I had these books as a kid but I would have eaten them up like franks and beans.
Charlie’s Angels Underwater Intrigue (eBay Link) –
Remember that episode of Charlie’s Angels where they went scuba diving? I don’t but it probably did happen on the show. The Hasbro Charlies Angels toys were really cool and tried to combine adventure with fashion, I applaud them for that. Also, this set contains pieces from a very rare mail-away Super Joe set to boot. Lots to love here!

More importantly, do you remember when Charlie’s Angels and Love Boat did a crossover? Same universe, man. Same universe!
I do but they never made it to Fantasy Island and that my friends, is a missed opportunity.
I [love] the Charlie’s Angels’ clothing set, + the Billy Carter T-shirt!
( For those who don’t know about BC, Billy Carter is the brother of U.S. President, Jimmy Carter. Billy was always getting into messes, so they say).
I remember reading an article. I think the article was on a [beer can] collecting site.
The article said something like: if you learn about Evel Knievel…the motorcycle guy, and about Billy Carter’s brand of beer, named “Billy Beer”, then you have the basics of the 1970s. 😀
