Richie Rich Pepsi Glass
Here's a vintage piece of Harvey memorabilia that I purchased yesterday from The Time Tunnel in San Jose. It's a Richie Rich Pepsi glass that dates from about 1975 when Harvey merchandising was at its peak.
As mentioned in the previous blog entry, most Harvey memorabilia dates from the late 60s to early 70s. There are other peak times like in the mid-50s when the Paramount Famous Studios cartoons were still being produced, and like in the mid-90s when the "Casper" movie and cartoon series were airing.
I have tended to avoid these type of purchases due to their breakability, but the price was good and I had a little extra dough for once. I know that there are a few others like Casper, Spooky, Wendy, Hot Stuff and Baby Huey...
