These Archie’s Gang juice glasses were jelly jars in 1973. We couldn’t talk Mom into buying these very often as they were more expensive than the generic jelly. (But Mom! You get a glass too!) I’ve got a few examples of jelly jars/ juice glasses I’ll post in the next few days. She had 4 Archie glasses, but one got broke somewhere along the way. She doesn’t worry about it too much, the grandkids love using them so she just lets them use them and takes it in stride if one breaks. That’s my family: making your collectibles even more rare and valuable.
These particular glasses feature Archie, Jughead, Reggie, Betty and Veronica, with Mr. Weatherbee thrown in for good measure and Hot Dog on the bottom of one (and helping push the car too!). They are a little hard to photograph with the story going around the glass like they do, but you get the gist of what’s going on.
I remember Archie’s Gang from the TV cartoon show (anyone else remember that?), but soon discovered the Spire Comics version and had several of those as well, though I don’t seem to have them anymore.
