90 Days of Summer: Editors' Picks

Day 15: Throwback Dad

Give dad a throwback this Father’s Day with his favorite impossible-to-find collectible.

Vintage Action Figure
It’s crunch time for Pops’s gift. Still coming up empty? Nothing does the trick like nostalgia, and we’ve got three ideas to fit a father of any proclivity. For his favorite album on vinyl (or just a hard-to-find 7” he hasn’t been able to get his hands on), try Eclipse Records in St. Paul. Hubs have a childhood video game addiction? Cedar Cliff Collectibles stocks vintage video games (and their beloved action figure counterparts) for every console imaginable. And for the guy who has every comic imaginable, there’s always one he still hasn’t snagged at Comic Book College. Father’s Day 2013, solved.
