Remember Johnny Hero?

Johnny Hero was a thirteen inch tall figure produced by Rosko Industries for Sears. It was basically a sports figure that could be fitted with various team uniforms. Several sports team uniforms were made for good ol’ Johnny, including the Washington Redskins and other NFL and AFL teams as well as MLB teams. The uniform kits included plastic helmets and were printed in team colors. Later on Johnny was repackaged as Olympic Hero.

As you can see in this Johnny from Hake’s, when you got your Johnny he came with a snappy red uncomfortable looking track suit.
