Someone Bought This: 1989/1990 WWF Fan Club Application

1989 Boy's Life WWF Fan Club Application

Matt over at Dinosaur Dracula has a new article about vintage mail-away ads in Boys’ Life magazine¬†which is a ton of fun to read. It happens to include amongst the ads an application for the 1989/1990 WWF Fan Club seen above.

Just $9.95 + $1.25 Shipping And Handling for all that fantastic stuff? What an awesome deal! I guess this is a perk of being a Scout (or a Boys’ Life reader, anyway).

I especially want the “WWF Fan On Board” sign.

“Hey, you should be extra careful driving around me! I’m an official member of the WWF Fan Club, don’t you know?”.

This must have been the year just before they started including those awesome cassettes with wrestlers’ theme music on them.

Also; there was an ALF Fan Club? Sweet! Why was I not informed of this in 1989?! That’s not quite as cool as the Nintendo Power Patches, but it comes close.

Were any of you Crappers ever a member of the WWF Fan Club? What kind of cool stuff did you get when you joined? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Remember fan clubs? They’re back, in Alf form.

    I joined that year, though I can’t remember whether or not I used the ticket voucher or not. I think I have the music from the cassette that came the next year copied from a friend, as I didn’t rejoin.

  3. Joseph S. Hasan says:

    I remember getting a cassette of entrance themes, a newsletter or two, and the voucher for a free ticket, which I tried to redeem years later for a SmackDown or Sunday Night Heat taping- success! There was likely other stuff, i.e. photos.

    I still have an old jacket with a WWF Fan Club patch on it.

    I heard if you sent this in today, you receive XFL tickets, an empty Poland Spring bottle Triple H drank from, a rubber hand, and Sin Cara’s contract.

  6. Ben says:

    And this isn’t just any WWF Fan Club, it’s the 1989/1990 WWf Fan Club.

    I guiess this means that of all the years the WWF ever had, those two were the BEST! TWO! YEARS! EVAH!!!!!

    I was a member for a couple years as a kid. I forget if I had this one or not, but I did join to get those tapes of the entrance music. In fact, I still have those things somewhere, along with my original copy of Piledriver (sans case insert, dammit).

    I remember getting those, the “autographed” (they were printed copies, not hand signed) pictures, and a Hulk Rules ruler which I still have as well. I think I still have an Undertaker picture I got from the club in a folder somewhere also.

    I’m still surprised ladies still liked me growing up…
