Ever wonder what happens to all that promo giveaways? The past couple of weekends had me trolling antique malls in downtown Orange and I came across several Halo-related items that may be of interest to people around here. I took photos so that if anyone wants more info, they can ask here.
FYI, I come across a HUGE amount of baseball-related stuff in antique stores all the time. Some of it fairly vintage. The missus loves to go antique sailing and I need an agenda! If anyone has a particular interest and wants me to keep a lookout, just let me know.

Topps Nolan Ryan 1972 Angels card (this is the year he arrived in Anaheim. Close inspection of the cap will show that the photoshoped logo is wrong. My son Rubix thought it to be the location of the halo, but a Del Rice photo from the same year shows that the halo is correct. What appears to be out of order is the font on the "a" itself.):
