Re: The Latest Batman Item You've Acquired?

Wow, sort of the same thing here, Andy. I preordered as soon as possible but about two months later my Spidey Sense (or Peter Tingle) kicked in. Glad I didn't waste the money. It's too bad as up until this I've been rather pleased with the offerings of NJ Croce. Well, turns out that I DID preorder i...

Hohner Harmonica Ad

This was posted by Brian McKernan in a collector's group on FB. First time I've ever seen it. The model sure looks a lot like Burt Ward but I'm pretty sure it's not him.
