To commemorate this glowing, radioactive moment in time Jim’s Toy Box dug this one out of the future (It’s a pre-order!). Here he is ladies and gentleman Missouri’s favorite son and 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman!
So show love and respect for the man who may have launched the Cold War but remember without it we never would have had a reason to “kill a Commie for mommie!”
