The Best 1988 Calgary Olympics Souvenirs You Can Find On eBay

They just don't make souvenirs like they used to

Style Watch

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics – the event remembered for the ineptitude of Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards and the brilliance of the Jamaican bobsled team – we thought we’d share some of the coolest – and weirdest — souvenirs from the Calgary Games currently available on eBay. Because it’s never too late to buy a souvenir to an event you never attended.

Two Anheuser-Busch beer steins, $49.95

A biathlon pin (a.k.a. a bear loading a rifle while skiing), $8.00

A “Hidy and Howdy” mascot poster, $79.99

A snapback cap, $39.99

An ABC media pin, $49.99

A USA hockey poster, $18.50

A luge pin, $3.99

And, of course, a Canadian curling poster (although this one isn’t technically from the Calgary Games), $39

Sadly there do not seem to be any Jamaican bobsled souvenirs available at the moment, although you can get a pair of 2011 Jamaican-bobsled-inspired Star Wars adidas shoes (if that makes any sense) for $62.
