Early Jazz Greats, Trading Cards, 1982

Early Jazz Greats, Trading Cards, 1982
Early Jazz Greats was a 36 card series that was drawn by Robert Crumb. Thanks to my brother-in-law Doug for turning me onto Bix Beiderbecke. Coleman Hawkins is also incredible, as are most of the artists pictured on this faux trading card set from 1982.

Pac-Man Stickers, Fleer, 1982

Project Mercury

Project Mercury, 4 Cent Stamps
Remember when you could mail a letter for 4 cents in America? I can't either. I guess it was around the time of Project Mercury, which commenced in 1959 and ran through 1963.
