5 Awesome Things on eBay this week

5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Bewitched Card Game (eBay Link)-   I grew up on this show and well, LOOK AT THAT BOX ART! I love it so much, the artist just gets the actors’ caricatures so right. I miss stuff like this.


Super Joe Commander Figure (eBay link)- Super Joe by Hasbro was the follow-up to GI Joe, it was Mego sized and it was set in space. I’m totally fascinated by them. Unfortunately, the rubber used in the joints doesn’t last, so when you buy a Mint on Card Super Joe, it’s usually just a bubble with pieces floating in it. They’re depressing and I own a whole bunch. This one isn’t terribly priced.

Complete set of Mego Love Boat Figures (eBay Link)– As much as I am a fan of Mego, I really can’t defend their decision to make Love Boat Action figures. Fashion dolls? Sure, that I get but I’m not sure why they went Star Wars size with these. My best guess is they were trying to get in with Kenner’s Glamor Gals. Anyway, here is a whole set and Isaac is off the card, so you can play with him. Everyone needs an Isaac figure.

1980s Good Humor Menu (eBay Link)- Finding this today reminded me of the Dickie Dee man, which was a guy on a bike cart that would ring bells through our neighbourhood with ice cream (some guys would also sell you the dry ice). They had this ice cream called “The Dracula Delight” that I would love to find a wrapper for. Stuff like this is magical.

Hasbro Star Trek Paint By Numbers Set (eBay Link)- What better way to spend a snowy winter day than by doing some Star Trek art? It’s a good use of your time and you’ll have a valuable keepsake to give future generations. This used set is only $35, a bargain!

    I must have missed the episodes where Tony Curtis played Darrin.

    The art for the bewitched game apparently came from a magazine cover. They just deleted the bottle of booze.
