Mail Order Monday - 1980 Winter Olympics Mascot
I remember collecting these banana stickers during the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics. I had to tape them to the "collector card." If you've ever tried to reuse a sticker from a banana, you know they don't hold up too well. Maybe it was my young age, maybe I found a cartoon raccoon playing sports amusing or maybe a little of both. At any rate, I did not send away for the plush mascot.
Fun fact: The mascot was named Roni after the Adirondack Mountains.
