Last year in WEEK 10 of v1.0 we reissued the GATEWAY ARCH in honor of the improbable World Series Champion St. Louis CARDINALs. This week we reissue the CARDINAL bird - but not from St. Louis!
The CARDINAL is the state bird of Ohio, but more importantly is hugely represented at the entrance to the Ohio State Fair! Current Club-A-Rama members will each receive their very own CARDINAL souvenir from the Ohio State Fair of the 1970s! Eldin Irwin trailered Mold machines around the midwest in the 1970s to bring them to many fairs and other events, e.g., the PUMPKIN SHOW (See Week 43 of v1.0). One stop for the trailered mold machines each year was the Ohio State Fair, until around 1981 when it was last used there because Eldin stopped trailering his mold machines around.
