Retro Blue Jays – $1.99 Jays caps at McDonald’s



Posted by RetroTy and Retrontario.

Once upon a time, McDonald’s sold Blue Jay hats for charity. Sadly, I was a toddler at the time and couldn’t take advantage of this wonderful promotion. Granted, I grew up in a time when one could buy hockey and baseball cards at Micky D’s. Still, I would much rather buy a cap and support a great cause.

To help with the promotion. McDonald’s enlisted the services of Bobby Cox and Ernie Whitt.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame last month, Cox has a commanding presence. The father and male cashier are immediately intimated by the sight of him. Good thing they weren’t umpires.

As for Whitt, there are three things one quickly learns about the former catcher, coach and current Team Canada manager: 1) He likes tea. 2) Even off the field, he has quick hands. 3) The female cashiers were quite smitten with him and his Magnum, P.I. looks.

It’s been a while since the Jays and McDonald’s had a partnership. But that doesn’t mean the promotion couldn’t return. I’m looking at you, Pizza Nova and/or Tim Horton’s.

And now…I’m hungry.
