Last week I was at a store that sold vintage toys when an in box Shaun Cassidy Hardy Boys figure caught my eye. I do not collect Hardy Boys material, but I had been watching the show again lately and had never looked at one up close. The box was crisp and the doll looked perfectly intact. I asked the guy how much and he wanted $75 dollars. When I told them it was way too high a fire sale commenced and he came down to $40. For some reason, I still could not bring myself to pull the trigger, which I think aggravated the owner even more and he lost interest in trying to sway me. Which is probably for the best, even though it was a great deal.
Of course, if I got Joe, I would have had to eventually pick up Frank, and I am pretty sure a lunchbox is probably lurking out there that I would need to have betwixt them on my shelf. So I keep repeating to myself, “It is for the best”, but when I watch the show or see this commercial and of course I have my doubts. I wonder if he would have taken $35…
