The Great Garloo by Marx 1960s A 1961 commercial for The Great Garloo by Marx toys. This toy is hot and collectors go nuts over them even if they don't work. Notice the price at the end. It must have floored most parents! See the pictures I have of this toy and his son from my collection.

Billy Ripken Baseball Card Obscenity Fleer's 1989 baseball card of Billy Ripken of the Baltimore Orioles had an unusual feature: an obscenity on the handle of his bat. For years Ripken blamed a playful teammate for scribbling the naughty message on his bat just before the photo was taken. In 2009 Ripken fessed up, saying he had written the message on his batting practice bat to distinguish it from his game bats. He had just finished taking BP at Fenway Park when the Fleer photographer snapped this photo. When this error became public knowledge, Fleer reissued Ripken's card several different times, with the offending message blacked out or obscured in a different manner. Predictably, the original 'error card' is much in demand by collectors.

Superman Muhammad Ali Comic Book DC Comics put out this 'Superman vs. Muhammad Ali' comic book in the late 1970s. They must have printed way more than they sold. I remember them being advertised on TV as 'collectors items' in the mid-1980s. (By the late 1970s, Ali was a mere shell of his former self, so I'd bet on Superman.)

Susan B Anthony Dollar This coin didn't flip--it flopped! With great fanfare in 1979, the United States Treasury Department minted millions of $1 coins featuring a portrait of suffragette Susan B. Anthony on the obverse. Americans were used to dealing with dollar bills--which were still being produced--so the coins were largely shunned. Moreover, their size made them easily confused with quarters. The dollar was minted again in 1980 with little success. In 1981 it was minted solely for collectors' sets. The Susan B. Anthony dollar was reissued in 1999 to meet the demand of vending machines that required dollar coins for change, but they are still generally detested by the public.

Cigar Store Indians Cigar store Indians (or wooden Indians) were used by tobacconists as garish advertising figures. At one point in the late nineteenth century, the cigar store Indian was a tobacco icon much like striped poles were for barber shops or three gold balls were for pawn shops. The figures were often three-dimensional wooden sculptures several feet tall; some were life-sized. They were first utilized because of the general illiteracy of the populace. American Indians and tobacco had always been associated. Since Indians had introduced tobacco to Europeans, the depiction of native people on smoke-shop signs was inevitable. As early as the seventeenth century, European tobacconists used figures of American Indians to advertise their shops. The statues began to lose their prominence in twentieth century America largely because cities began restricting the presence of intrusive objects on public sidewalks. Most surviving figures are museum pieces and collectors' items.

Teen Talk Barbie Controversy 1992 In July 1992 Mattel released Teen Talk Barbie. Each doll was randomly programmed to 'say' four out of a possible 270 phrases, such as 'Wanna have a pizza party?' and 'Will I ever have enough clothes?' One phrase raised the ire of women's groups: 'Math class is tough!' According to the complainers, the phrase encouraged the negative stereotype of girls being mathematically challenged. Even though only about 1.48% of the Teen Talk Barbies could repeat that taboo phrase, Mattel removed the phrase from further production. The company also offered to replace any doll that had it. There were few takers. The rarity and controversy of the 'math class' phrase has made it a very desirable collectors' item.
