Product Highlight: 1992 MotorArt Iditarod Sled Dog Race

Wow! The 80’s and 90’s really did bring us some unusual card sets.

MotorArt (out of Florida) certainly isn’t the first card manufacturer you think of first. Most likely because they didn’t stick around that long. Thanks to MotorArt collectors were introduced to the Iditarod Sled Dog Race Set.

The 1992 MotorArt Iditarod Sled Dog Race Set consists of (110) cards. You could purchase the cards in two different formats:

Hobby Box
Factory Set

There was also a 4-card promo pack they issued.

Over the course of the set you will find cards of mushers, dogs, and the various survival procedures they go through to finish the race.

No relics. No autographs. No parallels. No chase cards. MotorArt did offer a promotion where you could send away for a complete set on an uncut sheet. They only made 1,049 of these (one for each mile of the race). Each sheet cost $49.

Standalone Iditarod Race sets have never gained much hobby traction. Its not uncommon to find mushers included in products such as Allen & Ginter, Sport Kings, and Goodwin Champions.

Under The Tree: 1992 JusToys NFL Quarterback Club Bend-Ems

It might be easier to list the properties JusToys didn’t make bendable action figures for throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s. The list is quite extensive – WWF, WCW, Marvel, Star Wars, Lassie, Free Willy, Universal Monsters, Disney, etc… Doing a quick eBay search will take you down nostalgia lane.

NFL fans got to see four of the most popular quarterbacks in 1992 receive the “Bend-Ems” treatment – Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, John Elway, and Randall Cunningham.

Figures could be purchased in two different ways. Individually or in a gift set.

JusToys Bend-Ems were relatively inexpensive when they were originally released, and for the most part still remain cheap today. Although there are a few exceptions.

Bendable wire and rubber are the only two components to this toy line. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Football collectors can easily add them to their collection without difficulty.

They all look like they were hit with Joker’s laughing gas.
