Sweathogs Grease Machine (eBay Link)

 I was six when “Sweathog Mania” swept the nation, and I vividly remember all this merch. This stuff sat on the shelves; besides the (above average) comic book, I don’t think I purchased a single thing.

Mary Hartman Iron On 5 Awesome Things on eBay this week


Mary Hartman, Mary Hartmen Iron-On (eBay Link)-

Conan the Barbarian Black Light Poster (eBay Link)

I never really dug Conan books but he was so tied to Marvel comics in the 70s, he feels a bit like an old friend. I’d love this poster, but I assume you need wood panelling to do it justice and probably ownership of a van. I’m not that dude, I wish I was…
