Old VINTAGE BATMAN Toys, Momorabilia, & Merchandise From Around The Globe!
Everything "Batman" on the internet lately has been the "Dark Knight, Dark Knight, Dark Knight" so I thought I would pop-up some old school merchandise! I also thought I would put an interesting twist on it & show stuff from around the world. Here we go! The 1st item is from both the 1960's & the UK so it's pretty RARE! This is a vintage package of BATMAN CANDY CIGARETTES. I seriously love the old retro graphics, it even has the 60's Batman Logo, nice! The 2nd piece of Bat-History is from Greece! This was an officially issued Coca-Cola BATMAN SODA POP CAN made around the time of the 1989 Batman Movie, very RARE too! The next item is one of my favorites. It's a box of JAPANESE 1960's BATMAN PLAYING CARDS, of course, from Japan! The last item is very special also. It's a BATMAN POCKET WATCH with retro-graphics of The PENGUIN Villain. The cool thing about this watch is that it's animated. The "Penguin Animal" you see standing next to him, it rocks back & forth with crazy movement! This baby is from the UK ( 1960's ) & is so RARE it's what we could easily call a "Museum Piece". One last thing, this is a message to all our friends from around the world. If you have photos of RARE Batman Memorabilia then please send them to us!! Sharing the love of the character & collecting is what the Bat-Blog is all about!!
