I bought this Hallmark "Little Gallery" pewter figurine a few weeks ago off of eBay. There are seven of the Muppets in a 1951 Studebaker convertible. I love the detail in this Hallmark item.

I found out by reading the Ornament Trader book that this figurine was never released. This is what the book says:
"The sculptor of this unique Muppets in a 1951 Studebaker convertible was Duane Unruh. Unruh carefully sculpted this figurine. The sculpture was cast in the finest pewter and delicately antiqued to highlight this figurine. This plaque was cancelled before it was tested, 8/5/80".

My Muppet plaque has the saying, "Welcome to the Winner's Circle". But if you look at the book cover, that plaque says, "There's No Such Thing As Too Many Friends". Does anyone know anything about this other one?

Can you find all of the Muppet characters in this Hallmark plaque?

I actually recently got two things. One is a Funko Pop Big Bird that was flocked. The other is a shirt with Kermit, Gonzo, Fozzie, Beaker, Dr. Honeydew, Rowlf, Dr. Teeth, Floyd and Animal on it.

I'm happy there's a whole Muppet section at Hallmark at all my three local malls, but the type of merchandise they have aren't really to my liking

Does anyone know a good website to search for some nice muppety items?
For websites? I think just things like eBay, and etsy?? Goodwill can be good, though mostly the toy section for Sesame Street. Used toy sores can have some good stuff of various Henson things in my experience. I've gotten a Fozzie doll, a baby Miss Piggy and a nerd Gonzo and a Swedish Chef doll from used toy stores. it takes a lot of looking but you can find rad stuff for good prices sometimes :mad::concern::embarrassed::hungry:
