Question GGO GOO EYES PLUG >,

Did Johnny Habs ever make a knockoff of the original plug that Charlie Cinto caught the 73 # on .
I remember he had a booth at the RISSA show over ten years ago & he had Charlie signing them [yep & I bought one }..........Just wondering if they were his or the one Gibbs made way after the original . It has zero indentify on the plate >,.

Thanks ><><

ENJOY WHAT YOU HAVE !!!

Habs made his version of the Goo Goo and had Cinto at his booth at least the one year, maybe more.

A few years later Gibbs picked up the design and sold it as the Gibbs Goo Goo Eyes. You could buy them in two sizes. I believe they also sold some with Cinto's signature on them. I am 99.9% sure they no longer make them, though.

I guess I did ok then when I bought it from Habs for $20 & also I ok when we were riding around the beaches yesterday & stopped at a nice antique stop & found a small box with some mixed stuff in it tucked in a corner .
I waited a while & then asked the owner what he wanted for the two wooden yellow plugs . he said lets go see . he said how about $15 for box . SOLD ,just the sinkers must be worth $5

now except for the snelled hooks & the sinkers, all the rest are going on the wall on lost /found/ & broken . I might start selling them on e-bay / my kids are already bitching about cleaning this mess up when I,m gone ................ But are still real happy I got rid of all the toys in the basement rec room
