Ohio Jaycees Pin - 1980s

sgI came across this little oddity a few years ago on ebay and had to have it (don't I say that about everything on here?). All I remember is that it was from the 1980s and is obviously not an officially-licensed piece. It measures about and inch and half high, and is pretty well made.

I love that Aquaman is--or was, at least--still so much in the general public's mind that the Ohio Jaycees would think to use him as their unofficial mascot.

A lot of that has to do with his Super Friends TV fame, of course, but I think it also has something to do with Aquaman's inherently friendly appearance--you don't see anybody using the Sub "Destroy the Surface World" Mariner as their mascot, now do you?*

*no, you don't.
