Re: Copyright infringement.

Not so sure Andy....

A lot of the watch company's copied watch case designs back in the 20's and 30's.

Re: Rose Bowl collector?

In case we have any University of Washington Alumni or just a fan, I've got a 1991 Rose Bowl button if anyone would like.

Send me a PM with your addy and I'll send it to you.

Re: The Holy Grail has arrived

This one really brought a smile and a chuckle for me Mark! :)

I met Mel back in the 70's and was the nicest guy (not to mention naturally funny). We stood talking in front of his bank for 30 min. like old friends who hadn't seen each other for a while.

Congratulations, you scored well!!!! :mrgreen:
