Happy Scooter to you.

Laughing Elephant Happy Birthday Scooter Vespa Retro Vintage Card

For $18.90 you can pre-order these cards from Barnes & Noble . They come in a set of six. The inside message reads:

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? – Satchel Paige

The illustration comes from a mid-century children’s book and man oh man would I love to know what book that is.

Thanks to Julie G. for this find!

A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol

Scooby Doo Ska Rude Boy Vespa Lambretta Mod Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol Scooter Toy

Have you been good girls and boys over the summer? Well here’s a cartoon and a toy for you. The cartoon is called “Rude Boy Lives” and is from the new Scooby Doo series “Mystery Incorporated.” It actually features ska loving scooter riding skeletons chasing down the usual suspects. It’s a-mah-zing. The toy is called the “Mystery Machine Ghost Patrol” and features a scooterish object to help Shaggy capture ghosties. It came out a few years ago so it’s not impossible to find.

Thanks to Joe B. for this find!

Bellboyyyyyy!

Jimmy Quadrophenia Jonathan Edwards Print

Here’s Jimmy from Quadrophenia as illustrated by the very talented UK artist Jonathan Edwards. You can own this image as a signed and numbered very limited edition print. (There are only 25 being produced.) It comes mailed flat on A3 archival quality matte paper. For us Yanks, that means it measures approximately 16.5 x 11.7 in. Best news of all? It’s only £25 which I think is a steal.
