Toss Up, Fireman and Exterminator
Elster recently reminded me that it's no longer 1986. Of course, he is right. If it were still 1986, I would not have spent $70 on the DVD set of the '86 playoffs and World Series, and the Mets would not have so many holes in their starting rotation.
Nor would I have been nostalgic enough to have just spent another $70 on a vintage Time Out handheld game. As some may recall, around 1980-1981, a number of tiny handheld video games were quite popular, particularly Toss Up, Exterminator and Fireman. Toss Up was my favorite. It was quite simple, with a ball juggled back and forth, and a graphic reading 'Crush' when the ball was dropped and the game ended.
I just spotted an eBay auction for Toss Up by a seller in Europe, and immediately purchased the item.
I am looking forward to getting reacquainted with Toss Up soon.
