Say U.N.C.L.E

You may have heard that there's a  Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie coming out this summer.  For you youngsters it's based on a tv show from the mid-1960's.  In 1965 Topps issued a set of 55 B&W Man From U.N.C.L.E cards.  I recently picked up my first, a nice shot of Napoleon Solo played by Robert Vaughn.

I've had this book for half a century.  Oh my!

I can't remember who had what but I know that between a friend and I, I'm sure we had at least these two toys.  

Star Trek fan will love this clip (but they've probably already seen it).  Hogan's Heroes, Werner Klemperer is also in the scene.

  1. Huge MFUncle fan here. I wanted the UNCLE gun so bad for my birthday in 1965 or 66. I was begging the folks. And I got the gun and a Solo action figure! I remember I was so excited I put the gun together and ran outside to show a friend who was walking his dog. So I go up to him and I'm yelling LOOK, I GOT THE UNCLE GUN and I put the sight up to my eye like I was gonna shoot. I guess I looked threatening because the dog attacked me. Jump dive bombed me, hitting the gun and knocking me over. He broke the silencer section of the gun in half. I didn't have the gun for 5 minutes. I think that was the last time I ever cried in public. lol.
