There’s a couple of cool video game auctions on eBay right now. I thought this was a neat promo item from the Super Nintendo days. It’s an NBA Jam 1994 Souvenir Glass Mug. I was never a basketball fan but I remember when NBA Jam hit the SNES every kid was talking about it. That’s what made the game special is that you didn’t have to be a basketball fan to enjoy the game. It was a unique game for it’s time and who can ever forget putting the net on fire when your player was hot? Good times.
Anyways, the NBA Jam mug was a promotional item given out by Acclaim. The seller says, “This large glass mug is a promotional souvenir from Acclaim Entertainment’s Jam Day, March 4, 1994, when they rolled out the first cartridge game version of Midway’s very popular NBA Jam arcade Game.”. Now back in the 90’s promotional items were as easy to get as one might think. By the time Y2K hit promos were being distributed at almost every video game store, but in the early 90’s it was sort of handed out to the “good” customers of the stores. Well, that’s how it worked where I live. I remember having a conversation with a store owner and he said how promo items were given in small numbers by the companies, unlike today where there’s free posters and swag at the check-out counter. I bring this point up because it adds value to older promo items such as this NBA Jam Glass mug. There’s around a day left. Check out the auction!
