Cleveland McDonald's 1974

    Newer Older

    This is one in a set of six trading cards given away at Cleveland, Ohio area McDonald's restaurants in 1974. Each card features a McDonaldland character visiting a cultural center of interest. On back is a description of each location, operating hours and a discount offer on some of them. These cards are slightly larger than baseball cards. I think these were a late Spring, end-of-school-year, give-away to promote fun Summer activities for kids.

    Featured here is The Hamburglar at Blossom Music Center, located between Cleveland and Akron.

      ... Featured here is The Hamburglar at Blossom Music Center, located between Cleveland and Akron, enjoying the musical stylings of The Grand Funk Railroad. LOL

      [:::] Billoney -- And he brought his own snack! (Probably pilfered from the local McDonald's.)

      [:::] Jason -- The Hamburglar was always seen on-the-move, so it's a unique look at him here kicking back and enjoying the tunes.

      [:::] CheshireCat -- The Pink Floyd laser light show starts at sundown! :-)

      [:::] I should also say this is probably my favorite card in the set because it's a really unusual version of him. I'm normally more of a Grimace / Mayor / Big Mac fan, but the Hamburglar is starting to win me over!

      The groovy mellow Hamburglar is very cool. And I think the singer's giving him the eye!
