I feel that I am a little behind on posting exhibits for the year, we’re more than half way through 2019 and I have only posted 12 exhibits so far. To help catch up, today I am posting a new exhibit as well as the retrospective Jidigi puzzle I posted earlier.Continue reading →
Today I would like to share another of the older items in the permanent collection, and much like the last exhibit, I must apologize for the condition of the item. Sliding tile puzzles are very collectible, and in good condition can get quite expensive. I am happy to have a copy of this item at all!Continue reading →
A recent post to the Harvey Comics Facebook group showing Cadbury demonstrating his fighting ability inspired me to create today’s exhibit. Long before Cadbury, Harvey Comics had pugilist Joe Palooka. And what better way to merchandise a character who is a boxer than a pair of boxing gloves?Continue reading →
Today we continue the number 888 Casper Three Dimensional Stickers from 1979. This set features Little Audrey instead of Fatso. The backing card is blue, so this is the “short blue Little Audrey” variant:
For the first exhibit of the sixth year of operation of the Harvey Mercheum website, I decided to feature another of the many items produced for the 1995 live action Casper movie. We have previously seen the Casper Bendables figure by Tyco and the Casper keychain by Dakin. Today we clean up with a sculpted bar of soap by Rovar. I could not find out much about Rovar or their “Soaptoons” except that they made soaps for the 1995 Batman Forever movie as well.
Today we have the last new exhibit for the fifth year of operation of the Harvey Mercheum website. For the occasion, I decided to do something special and post the last of the Larami rack toys in the permanent collection. It was a Larami rack toy that was the first exhibit in the Harvey Mercheum, so it is sad for me to draw this chapter to a close. And unlike the JA-RU rack toys, I have not seen any other Larami rack toys, so this really might be the end of them.Continue reading →
Quick post today of another example of the number 998 short Richie Rich Three Dimensional Stickers. Today’s set has the stickers featuring Jackie Jokers last seen almost a year ago here with the red hanger last seen here just over a year ago:
So here we are, starting March, and I have only posted two new exhibits this year. That has to be a record low. To help, I am posting two exhibits today, more examples of the number 998 short Richie Rich Three Dimensional Stickers. They both feature the orange hanger we saw last time, which was almost a year ago!Continue reading →
