Sweet Jim!
Those are all so cool.

Do you (or anyone else) have any of the baseball ones higher than #12?

Great stuff, Jim, I don't think I've ever seen the little vehicles or the baseball item. I did an article on the soldiers and the tents in an old version of the Wrapper, can't remember the issue number.

Edited to add: Issue #181, August 2001 was the issue

Chuck
I looked for that issue beforehand and just couldn't find it.
It seems there are two sets of soldier and sailor cards though
not the two different sizes that Benjamin refers to.

at these.
Then it hit me..
the ol Addams Family intro song with Lurch singing:

"....Neat,Sweet...Petite..."
seems appropriate
