Vintage Matchbox Car Erasers !!

The memories of these guys !! Matchbox erasers !! Back in the 80's there were so many cool things to steer our attention from schoolwork. A pile of car shaped erasers in the Matchbox Car scale sure did the trick !!

I remember the weird stamping on the bottoms of these guys.

The next two look they were hand etched into the eraser after they were molded. 

I had tons of these things in school. WAY more fun racing these around than schoolwork :) Setting up roads and courses with our books and supplies. Taking pencils and making bullet hole divots in them when they got shot up .... what fun !
I remember airplanes and all sorts of different styles of erasers, and they never were used for erasing ! Why use these wonderful toy like pieces of art for the purpose they were designed for ?!?!
Got something to add ? All are welcome to leave a comment !
