A Christmas Gift Tradition - A Sled Jim Trautman
In Canada the Sears Department Stores still give out free for the asking the Christmas Wish Book catalog. I pickup my catalog each September to look at all the decorations and toys that are available during the holiday season. The Christmas catalog has and continues to be the avenue for boys and girls to peruse and then make lists for Santa Claus to find for toys wanted to be found under the tree. Almost every child has wanted to see a sled under the tree. Then to hope for snow to put the sled through its paces.
Why Collect Radios By Alfred Zeeb
f there is a ranking of all the items that can be collected, vintage radios surely must show right at the top. What other objects will reward and serve in so many ways? Out of the vast variety of models made, there are still good sets readily available at reasonable cost, while at the other end of the scale there are select pieces which approach in rarity the most famous postage stamp. Thus, the pleasure of owning, restoring, looking at and eventually listening to a radio from yesteryear is easily within the reach of everybody.
Vintage radios are “active” collectibles. No true collector will be able to restrain his or her urge to restore, to make that “attic find” perform to its original specifications. And that opens up an almost unlimited range of possibilities. As radio technology represents the beginning of modern...

The History of Boxing and it's Memorabilia through the Ages
By David Bergin
The sport of Boxing has gone through several different stages, eras and rule changes throughout the years; however for the purposes of this article, boxing and the memorabilia it entails will be broken up into the two most distinct eras, the Bare-knuckle era and the Gloved era. The Bare-knuckle era is generally accepted to have occurred from the time of James Figg until the reign of John L. Sullivan ended over 170 years later. The gloved era un-officially begins in 1892 when James J. Corbett defeats John L. Sullivan in the first gloved World Heavyweight Championship fight held in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
Chalet Glass Conrad Biernacki
It was huge. It was very heavy. It was very, very orange. And it was one of the strangest objects my parents ever owned. Given pride of place in the centre of a small table in front of the dining room window, it glowed in the afternoon sunlight. And it’s still there today. I was intrigued by it as a teenager, and it still draws my attention many years later. Identical to the orange bowl shown here, it was made by Chalet Artistic Glass in Cornwall, Ontario, in business from 1962 to 1975. The company actually began in Montreal as Les Industries de Verre et Miroirs in 1958, changing its name to Murano Glass in 1960
