Food-Issue Friday: 1982 Burger King Collector Lid- Dale Murphy

1982 Burger King Braves
Issued by Burger King in 1982, these plastic lids measured 3-5/8" in diameter and were placed on special Coca-Cola cups which listed the scores of the Braves' 13 game win streak to star off the beginning of the 1982 baseball season.
The set itself contains 27 different lids- most notably this Murphy that I just picked up for $2.26. The set also contains Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, as well as two rookies from that season: Steve Bedrosian and Brett Butler- both of which are on my want list.

As you might expect, having been used on a cup of soda, the lid does contain a few light stains. Other than that, though, it's in pretty good shape.

  1. As a lover of all things oddball, that is a great one. Man I love those old food issued collectibles. Nice pick up.
