 HOPALONG CASSIDY EPHEMERA

hoppy banner

A Hopalong Cassidy Cowboy bicycle is a great bicycle to exhibit at shows. Everyone has heard the name Hopalong Cassidy even if they can’t immediately place the actual character. When I was growing up, if someone had a limp or a bad leg someone would always joke that they were ‘hopalong cassidy.’ William Boyd, who played the character, was the first film star to endorse so much merchandise. I own the items above and below: a Hopalong Cassidy banner (2′ 6″ long), Timex watch, View Master reel of a Hopalong Cassidy story, and a View Master viewer on which to view it; these are all ideal to accompany a bicycle display. But there are dozens of other fifties items you can buy cheaply to build an exhibit, including film posters, books, magazines, badges, and all sorts of cartons of products that he endorsed.
