Japanese Cards, 3-D Glass Display, and Frame-Tray Puzzle!
The Japanese people must've went for Batman even more than the USA, given the range of products that come up on eBay every so often! I'd love to see what all these cards look like.
Here's another of those "I wish I had a much bigger photo of this" items... it's kind of a 3-D glass item, with the main figure on a layer above the background.
So, apparently, Playskool decided that before I was going to have kids, they would discontinue these very cool super-hero frame-tray puzzles... it's very disappointing to me, because I hate to pay a premium price to buy stuff for the kids to play with, even though a) I love to encourage geekery in my children, and b) my daughter especially loves to play with puzzles!
The daily blog featuring photos of Batman-related merchandise going up through the 1970s, with a few 1980s items thrown in here and there! Your comments are welcomed!
Please note that I do not have any of these items for sale, and the vast majority of them are items I do not own at all. The photos were collected from eBay auctions over the years, and I wanted to share them with you all!
If you're interested in tracking down any of these items, I wish you luck, and hope that these posts help give you the information you need to find them offered on eBay! If you do purchase any of these items as a result of these posts, I'd love to hear about them -- and if you have better photos of anything I post here, I'd love to see them, too, and share them with my readers! You can email photos to me at waffyjon at comcast dot net. And if you link to a Batcave Trophy Room post, please let me know, and I'll add your blog to the blogroll!
