Although Christmas was technically yesterday, we are all in the Christmas spirit still. So today I'm going to give you a link to a whole bunch of great Christmas catalogs from the 1940s-1980s. Some of these catalogs have fishing tackle, like the followings ones:
1942 Spiegel Christmas Catalog
1945 Sears Toy Fishing Set
1955 Spiegel Bache Brown
My favorite toy as a kid was the Vertibird Rescue Ship. I couldn't find a commercial for it, but here's a picture:
Sooooo... did you find your favorite toy in these catalogs?
