Christmas is just five days away, so maybe not enough time to get this onto your tree (does Santa use FedEx?) but check out this terrific-looking Dallas Cowboys 3D Stadium Ornament. That’s a cool design, a “3D” rendering of JerryWorld™. The seller also has these for the Saints, Bucs, Texans, and KC and their respective stadiums. Each says “Here’s to a Wonderful Season” on the back side.
Now for the rest of this week’s picks:
- One more from America’s team: When I was growing up, we had one of these Cowboys KRLD stickers on the back of our station wagon.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers logo is inside the NFL shield for this 1985 pin from Sears Roebuck & Co.
- This pair of 1960s Boston Celtics glasses says “World Champions.” And how — they won a staggering nine titles that decade.
- This is a vaguely frightening-looking St. Louis (baseball) Cardinals “Buddy Big League” doll. Kinda resembles those old ventriloquist dummies, and it sings “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
- Here’s a 1950s New York (baseball) Giants pencil topper. Made from plastic with a “metallic finish.”
- How about the rather day-glo look to this 1960s Wilson NFL football poster? Play to win with Wilson!
- You too can be an official member of the 1986 San Diego Padres with this Pepsi promo gear bag.
- I remember seeing this exact 1970s Fran Tarkenton Puma promo poster at a sporting goods store in Milford, Ohio. “Beconta” refers to their American distributor.
- Another Tarkenton item here: this Sears No. 10 Vikings jersey from Rawlings, which will forever remind me of the late Mary Tyler Moore.
- And finally, in honor of the annual airing of A Christmas Story, we have this Red Ryder 80th-Anniversary BB gun. You’ll shoot your eye out!
That’ll do it for this edition of CC. See you back here next week, and a very Merry Christmas to all!
I can not think of an item that says ¨Christmas¨ quite like those Sears jerseys…well, maybe that air rifle.

Brink: Thanks for filling up all my free time tonight.
I remember the wonderful Mary Tyler Moore wearing the not-so-wonderful Tarkenton jersey (I never liked him, despite his name, and because I was a Giants fan who saw him scramble for 45 seconds and then throw a pick too many times in my first years of fandom). But the football uni-meets-pop culture moment for me was an episode of “McMillan and Wife” from the same timeframe, where Susan Saint James and Rock Hudson were lounging around on the bed one morning and she was wearing a white 49ers Gene Washington jersey. (I hadn’t developed my dislike for the Niners yet).
