Mardi Gras/Star Wars Doubloons
« on: February 26, 2005, 05:02 PM »
Anyone else collect SW Mardi Gras stuff?

I got talking to one of the guys (Gary) over at the PSWCS, and lately have kinda been into the MArdi Gras stuff, mostly the doubloons.

Anyhow, I have 2 coins from '79 and '82, and an R2 necklace '02, and was wondering if anyone else was into this stuff.  Kinda hard to find cheap, kinda up there for what you get, but fun nonetheless.

The other item I;ve been trying to find cheap is the Yoda/Bourbon Street poster from years ago (I know...good luck)  every so often one hits ebay for some $$$, been snooping around New Orleans on my trips there and no luck on any of this stuff.

Man, I didn't even know those things existed, Bob.  Any good reference sites for them?  They sound interesting, and I wouldn't mind nabbing a few just to round out the collection a little bit.  What kinda prices are usually attached to that kinda stuff?

Yep, they exist along with a Mardi Gras poster. I remember seeing them on the archive.
