Two new exhibits posted, Richie Rich Wallets
Bad weekend for the Harvey Mercheum. Saturday I got some pictures taken, then one of my lights fell over and the bulb shattered. Guess my photo setup is not so great after all. I did get the Larami rack toys photographed, and to celebrate I thought I would post a couple of them. When I went to write the post yesterday, I could not get on the website, and when I did, I could not upload images to it. Today I am snowed in again, and this morning I was able to get a couple of the images uploaded, so here they are.
I have already posted about play money, and how it is the ideal toy tie-in for Richie Rich. Once you have play money, you need a play wallet to keep it in. Larami answered the call with not one, but two wallets. Unfortunately, much like the Old Timer Cars, they used the same backing card and part number for both. What is interesting is that they changed the “MADE IN” text, but did not change the list of bullet points under the word “WALLET”. The yellow wallet has “SNAP FOR CLOSING” listed, even though it does not have a snap closure.
