What Will You Find For A T-Shirt?

A while back, mental_floss research editor Sandy Wood stumbled across our first ten issues for sale on eBay. $191.48 sounds pricy, but we've long since sold out many of those.

There must be other _flossy stuff for sale on eBay that wasn't published by us. Which brings me to today's t-shirt challenge. To win, you must find the most quirky, smart, funny, ironic "“ or any other adjective that roughly translates to "cool" "“ thing on eBay. Rare books, mind-blowing inventions, forgotten fads, Thundercats memorabilia, whatever.

Here's what you're playing for:

First Place: The mental_floss t-shirt of your choice.
Second Place: One (in-stock) back issue.

Here's how you play:

1. Browse around eBay.
2. Find something prize-worthy.
3. Leave a comment with a description, why you should win, and the Item Number (found in the upper right hand corner)

You have 24 hours. I'll post pics of selected reader suggestions tonight, provided there are suggestions to post. Get rummaging.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
