Throwback Thursday: Sears Wishbook Edition

Before there was Amazon, ebay or even the Internet.  There was the Sears Christmas Wishbook.  The Wishbook was about the size of a phone-book filled with everything a kid could want from Santa.  Anyone growing up in the 70’s or early 80’s knows what I’m talking about.  Below is a photo gallery that will hopefully bring back some good memories during a time when Philly sports scene is kind of bleak.  Enjoy your trip back to a time when NFL jerseys cost $5.99.
