I received an email a couple of weeks ago from Tom at The Angels In Order asking me if I had the need for some oversized items.
Normally, I shy away from stuff like that, because storing it is next to impossible and I have enough spills to clean up as it is.
But I couldn't resist the opportunity to land a giant Orel Hershiser head:
I had no idea what this was when I received the email and even less of an idea when it arrived. Fortunately, Tom left a note that said it was a 1989 Tara Toy "Play Ball."
I did some brief hunting and realized it was a simple plaque. You could hang it on the wall. I suppose it'd fit perfectly with the decor in a young boy's room (you'll have to forgive me for my puzzlement over a late 1980s toy. I was in college in the late '80s and I believe that if there is one point in your life when you have zero knowledge of little kids' toys it is the college years).
So there you are. It's something I can hang on my wall, if ... you know ... I could hang something like this on the walls of my home.
I received another oversized item from Tom:
It's a postcard-sized item that maybe was a stadium giveaway in the mid-1990s? I'm too lazy to do any research on it.
But apparently I'm not the only one. This note was added to the package:
What a relief. The last thing I want to do now is scan cards.
Enjoy your Sunday.
