    Grail Obtained

    I’ve posted on this item a couple times. In search of ...... never knew what it was called, still don’t. However the other day, out of the blue this showed up while I was searching for something else on EBay. In the grand scheme of things it is nothing, but in young jimmy’s mind it was his all time favorite cereal premium.
    On each spoke is a different baseball action; ball, strike, single, homerun, out, etc. I played with this thing non-stop. Anyway great to once again have it

    Congrats! It's always hard to find stuff you don't know the name of!

    It was years before, like you, I found something on ebay completely randomly: I had a cool moon buggy as a kid, and finally discovered, while looking for other things, that it was a Tang premium.

    All my grails involve memories......
    Brian, we’ve been at this long enough to know patience always prevails.
    Sooner or later whatever we’re looking for shows up. This was especially nice as this wasn’t my best week otherwise.
    A toy win helped make it a little better!

    Congrats Jim! Scoring a childhood Grail is as good as it gets in the Toy World.
