Sonic Promotional Stationery Items

You know, I could’ve sworn these things were made by Topps, but according to the info on the back they were produced by a company called Borden in 1993. As indicated by the logo on some of the items, they were intended to promote the release of Sonic 3. The top 8 items are temporary tattoos, the middle 8 are stickers, and the bottom 3 are pencil toppers. The first two sets are complete, while I’m missing 5 from the last.

I think these items are an interesting mix, because there’s no solid consistency in the art style among them; the company basically took whatever official art they could find and put it to use, regardless of whether or not all of the pieces matched. Regardless, I’m particularly happy that Knuckles made it into this mix, as this was at the time of his debut, meaning that he was a particularly rare find.

The lower left-most sticker of Tails is by far the cutest picture of him. If you disagree, you are wrong.

EDIT: These items were prizes found in CrackerJack boxes! Thank you to MummyShark for jogging my memory, as not being able to quite place where they came from was driving me nuts.
