Merry Christmas 1974/2020

It's six months until Christmas.


Here are the pages I've dog-eared in the Sears Wish Book for the 1974 Christmas Season, which is my favorite book so far of 2020:

-- 46, 48, 49, 182, 186, 188, 189, 191 and 192 (would need to write to Sears and ask if they could specially produce each item in men's XL);

-- 50 (items 1 and 4 for those quiet nights at home with the wife);

-- 187 (both Miniature Football Helmet Kits in the bottom left);

-- 286 (Item 1);

-- 318 (their most popular Butter-Ring Popper, in green);

-- 353, 354 and 355 (all items);

-- 378 (items 3N660893, 3N4295 and 3N4568);

-- 386 (Item 1);

-- 395 (Item C6N10843--and welcome to the team, Gordie Howe!);

-- 408 (11 each of all nine models of the one-piece Helmets of rugged Cycolac(R) plastic);

-- 411 (Item T6N15288);

-- 520 (items 4, 6, 8 and 12), 521 (items 16 and 20) and 522 (all items--especially Sub Search but maybe not Probe, because I might already it);

-- 524 (all items);

-- 526 (Your America);

-- 528 (One-on-One Basketball and (just in case the one I already have breaks) BAS-KET);

-- 533 (Electric Baseball and Baseball-Football Game Set);

-- 535 (all items, about a dozen each, just in case--especially O.J. Simpson See-Action Football Game (!), which I no longer have and is amazing), and

-- 575 (all Evel Knievel toys, again).


Thank you, God, for christmas.musetechnical.com, Sears, football, Mom, Dad, the wife, fun and Christmas.

  1. The brilliance of the Allen Ludden/Betty White stewardship of Password lies in their beautiful, shared passion for the game itself. They are not so much TV personalities in this program as they are evangelists for a particular instrument of fun. I love them, and I cannot wait until March 14, 2021, when I plan to watch this March 14, 1975, episode again. Please, Lord.
