MORE Li'l General Stuff! (Part Three in an Endless Series)


Well, fellow babies, I've found even more photos pertaining to the Li'l General convenience stores I discovered in Florida during a 1973 visit! (Previous posts on this subject can be found here and here.)

The above illustration of a Li'l General store was one I didn't have before. The matchbook pictured below is one that has yet to show up on eBay, so I haven't had the opportunity to add one to my collection.


But here's the prize, something that eclipses even the Li'l General yo-yo I managed to score recently! 


The wristwatch shown in the above photo was pointed out to me in the comment section of one of my previous Li'l General posts. It was presented on eBay as a "mystery character" and needless to say, I was highly intrigued. Unfortunately, the minimum bid for the watch was a little bit above what my current budget would allow, so it slipped through my fingers!

I can only hope I see one offered again someday, on eBay or anywhere else.

So much for the update!

Thanks for your time.

    1. Well, maybe to someone as old as I am, but I assume you're much younger than I.

    2. It was a good year. It was the year when Elvis's concert was broadcast live via satellite. It was a first!

      Like it was yesterday :(

    3. Were you even alive in 1973, Blue? If so, you must have been a baby.

  2. Sure seems to be a far amount out there. Maybe with your watching a watch shall come back once more.

  3. Too bad the watch was too expensive because it's almost a too-good-to-be-true find.

    Love,

    1. No, I haven't. Actually, I haven't been reading new comics since James Robinson's Starman series. And that ended in 2001!
