Souvenir Sunday: new airport trading card

It has a great name, it has a great art program , it has a fun play area for kids with a nursing room across the hall and a boot shop in with a nice line-up of other Texas-appropriate retail outlets.

And Dallas Love Field now has a collectible card in the growing North American Trading Card series.

Each airport usually keeps a stash of their cards at information booths in the terminals and the cards are often distributed during special events.

Here are few others that would be great to pick up during your travels:

Souvenir Sunday: Kit Kats at Narita Airport

Narita Kit Kat

Welcome to Souvenir Sunday, the day we take a look at some of the fun, locally-themed and inexpensive items you can buy when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week: Kit Kats picked up on a very short layover at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.

Wildly popular in Japan (where Nestle has a Kit Kat boutique), Kit Kats are available in dozens of unusual flavors in addition to the three – wasabi, hot Japanese chile and rum raisin – that we picked up at the airport.

Souvenir Sunday: travels with Jumbo

Found this souvenir postcard of “Jumbo” – an animal produced by cross-breeding an American bison with beef cattle.

These days they call that a beefalo. But back in 1929, when Jumbo was born, he was dubbed a catalo.

According to the promotional blurb on the envelope sold with this postcard, catalo held the promise of being a larger, superior breed of livestock.

Among the advantages:

“Longer life span, resist T.B and Blackleg, dress a greater percent of higher-priced cuts of beef, bear valuable fur, and the cows give good, rich milk and require no shelter in very cold climate.”

To spread the word and raise money to develop the new breed, in 1935 L.C. Wilson of Colville, Washington hooked 1,200-pound Jumbo up to a covered wagon and together they visited 23 states and traveled over 10,000 miles around the country, traveling at the rate of 2 miles per hour and an average of 10 or 15 miles a day.

No word if Wilson’s wife identified went along for the ride.
