Re: 1973 Warner Bros. Pepsi Glasses - Sylvester Error
Russell, thanks - interesting comments. I wonder if the Warner Brothers Pepsi 73 series was distributed somewhat earlier in your area in California - than some other parts of the country - or the distribution went on longer in some areas. My understanding is that the white letter glasses were made later on in the time period, since people discovered that with Pepsi in the glass you had trouble reading the character name in black letters and so they went to white letters. Also I think the thick Brockway glasses were the first group that was made and the thin glasses were worked into the series as they had to find glasses to use - the promotion was very successful and lots and lots of glasses were made, even though some combos ended up harder to find. What is the error on the Sylvester glasses? is it both thick and thin glasses of Sylvester with white and black letters that have an error? I am real curious about that. Thanks a lot for the information.
