Christmas Wishlist 1979

Christmas Wishlist 1979

This is one of my more cherised items, a Christmas wish list I created in 1979 clipping items out of the Sears catalog. As you can see the Mego collecting bug was strong even then and I still can’t spell millenium. As I recall it was a pretty great haul and yes, I got a new Cat Calendar, I obviously liked kitty cats when was nine. This is from the back, I needed to show my grandmother what green Goblin looked like, believe it or not, she found it!

Have a Happy Holidays everyone, talk to you on boxing day.

    I love finding old kid stuff like this. Pretty good list!

    yesterday i found an old D&D character sheet that i played with as a kid. I cannot believe how badly i used to cheat at that game. I am gonna scan it and blog it later this week.
