I must admit, I am a Yoo-hoo fan. The chocolate drink has been around since the late 1920s, and here’s a bottle from 1959 featuring Yankees pitcher Whitey Ford. The cap looks to be in good shape, but alas there’s no bottle label. And it seems he wasn’t the only Yankee to plug the drink, either.
Now for the rest of this week’s picks:
- Here’s a nice collection of San Diego Padres team passes from 1978-1990, all stamped with the name “Tom Mulcahy.” A couple of them say “Padres Action Team” on ’em, whatever that was!
- This looks like a nice Baltimore (or Indianapolis) Colts rain poncho from the 1970s-1980s. Note the hood has a lining in it, and the front laces up — features normally not included on those awful giveaway plastic rain jackets.
- Speaking of jackets, here’s one from Chalk Line featuring Pat Patriot. The seller says it’s from the 1970s, but it’s later than that.
- I like these 1970s Dallas Cowboys promo stickers from Chiffon. On the back side it says, “This NFL Booster decal is a gift to you from Chiffon with (your Mom’s purchase of) a one pound Chiffon Soft Tub or Stick Margarine.”
- One more from the Cowboys: They’re bringing back their early-1960s white helmet this season, so here are the guys who wore it first on this September 1963 copy of Sports Illustrated.
- This is a set of two 1970s NFL Director’s Chair canvas covers for the backrest and seat. These are the accurate logo fonts from the period.
- Here’s a 1975 Philadelphia Eagles Lil’ Pro heat transfer.
- Back in the day, this Astrodome bumper sticker proclaimed it to be the “Eighth Wonder of the World.” Now, sadly, the eighth wonder sits empty and abandoned.
- Green Bay Packer fans can buckle up with this 1971 team belt buckle from your friends at NFL Properties.
- Got a vintage Los Angeles Rams ice bucket for you. It comes styled with the old Rams head in yellow, and a simple “Rams” on the side.
That’ll do it for this edition of CC. See you back here next week!
