McObsession (part 2)



Here are some pix of my rapidly growing Mayor McCheese collection...

First up is the small stuff, pretty easy to find premiums n' whatnot from the 70s - 80s.

Second is my collection of restaurant pieces. A fiberglass Playland™ statue, and 2 wall hangings. All three are very hard to get, as not every McDonalds had them - and most were later destroyed when they would remodel.

And finally, here is my fiberglass McCheese costume head. This was used in the 70s for promotional use only. I doubt very much that 'all' the stores had one. There was probably only one made per region, or state - if that. I don't know for sure, but it's pretty rare nonetheless. I am currently working on restoring it to it's original splendor as well as making a full costume to go with it.

here is a vintage 70s pic of the same type of Mayor costume as the one I have...

There's something really hot about that Mayor McCheese on your head photo . . . can't quite place it, but it's the combo of burger with cheese, chami, and cargo shorts.

Cool Mayor McCheese collection! I can remember seeing some of the old statues in McDonald's as recently as about 15 years ago, but they're all gone now. Wish I had picked up some...

The good Mayor was always a favorite. I can't wait to see your Mayor McCheese costume completed.
