If you see the Golden Arches, you know exactly what they mean. McDonald's restaurants have been around since 1955, and have served cheeseburgers, french fries, and other "happy" meals to billions of people around the world. Besides its popularity for their fast food, McDonald's has also become well-known for pouring its beverages into hundreds of different glasses, cups, mugs, and other drinkware. These various containers have become highly collectible, and have been around since the 1970s. Michael J. Kelly, co-author of the popular "Collectible Drinking Glasses, has focused this time specifically on McDonald's drinkware and produced the most comprehensive identification and value guide on this subject. Over 1,600 items, both domestic and foreign, are listed and pictured in almost 300 color photographs. It's the only book to list and price glass, ceramic, pottery, plastic, acrylic, and paper drinkware. Glasses and cups commemorating grand openings, anniversaries, conventions, Hamburger University, Ronald McDonald House, sports, and NASCAR are all featured in this book. There is extensive coverage of convention stemware, paper cups, travel mugs, sports bottles, and sports glassware. Plus it features rare McDonald's managers' issues, prototypes, and error glasses never before seen in any publication.Kelly, Michael J. is the author of 'Mcdonald's Drinkware Identification & Value Guide', published 2005 under ISBN 9781574324471 and ISBN 1574324470.
