Classic Commercials: Masters of the Universe Toys

If you’re on this site, then I probably don’t need to tell you just how big He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was back in the ’80s.  For a couple of years there, you couldn’t get through life without being bombarded with He-Man merchandise.  I know I certainly fell victim to the never-ending stream of advertisements and tie-ins, and …..[CONTINUE]

Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Supercards ’87

Growing up in the mid-late ’80s, one of my greatest joys would come when I would go to the grocery store with my Mom and be able to pick up a new wrestling magazine.  It never mattered to me which one I got as long as I got one.  If you know anything at all about the glory days of …..[CONTINUE]
