BB: CALL OF THE WILD…

EVERY NOW AND THEN, SOMEBODY APPROACHES US AND ASKS IF BB HAS WOLF BLOOD, OR IF SHE IS PART WOLF.

It is a difficult question. In a way she is a wolf, however she is also all dog.

Philosophical issues aside, it was really funny, I was having friends over, and she felt neglected. She climbed on top of the staircase and started howling. Everybody laughed, she felt good about that and she gave me opportunity to take a pic…

Hake’s Americana recently published their Auction #206 Preview on Facebook… and…

HOLY CRAP! There is a major discovery!

With absolutely no fanfare, Hake’s Americana are auctioning a Kresge-carded Aquaman that I have NEVER SEEN. I strongly believed it to exist, but having never seen one - or met anyone who had – I was unable to definitively include this packaging variation.

In my book, I discuss this packaging variation (see page 62) as follows:

“Perhaps the most exciting revelation about Kresge’s character-specific code is that it suggests the possibility of at least one other 1st Issue Kresge Aquaman figure.”

Hake’s is about to sell an example of this VERY variation (pictured above). I call it the “Kresge Reorder” card, and Mego issued it in Winter of ‘73. For more information, check out my book, as I discuss it at greater length therein.

I am positively tingling with excitement.
