Found these at a local antique shop.  Should I have bought them?

I dig these retro promo glasses. I miss being able to get them at McDonalds and such.

In the mid-late 70s those were sold in my area at Hardee's. They were all Warner brothers characters.

Sorry it took a while. If the price is right I always snatch them up! The first pic appears to be a 73 Brockway black letter Porky. The other 2 are from the later 77 run. I have a complete white letter Brockway collection! Slow Poke was the money one ;) In mint condition they range from about 12-$60 depending on rarity.

I wish I still had my Star Wars glasses! I think you can get a full set for around $50 on ebay. Off to ebay I go!

Yup. We had a load of those. The Star Wars ones ( I think that was Burger King) and McDonald's character glasses. Sadly all are gone.

I live in the northeast/midatantic area. I think the Hardee's went out of our area late 70s early 80s.
