Cleveland McDonald's 1974

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.

    [:::] 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!

    [:::] Sam -- Yeah, she is kinda checking him out! Ha!
