No, but that "Slow Poke Rodriguez" one is the most awesome drinking glass I've ever seen!

Oh wow!  Figures I'd pick the most expensive one.  Now I'd be afraid to touch it.

These are from "73. There were 2 versions released., Brockway and Federal, both released a white letter and black letter version.  I have a full white letter Brockway collection which is the shit! Slow Poke is the rarest and sits as the centerpiece!!!

I just remember him from the cartoons.  Speedy Gonzalez's cousin.  I think he was in only two cartoons.  Loved that character.

That is some nice glassware. Did you get them all at one time? Do you drink from them or are they just for show?

I started collecting them about 2 years ago and just finished my white letter Brockway collection a week ago w/ Slow Poke. They are mostly for show, I have some duplicates I use on special occasions! Starting my black letter collection now! ;)
