They’re here! The official Mr. Throwback Thursday “TBT 800” mugs! These are SUPER LIMITED! There are only 120 of these in existence (40 of each glaze), so you want to “Get on it, it’s your turn.”
The Sandstone glaze mugs are numbered “SC 1/40” for a long lost member of the TBT Posse. Scott Coomes (affectionately referred to as Bobo). Jamie and Scott were friends from the age of 9, and Bill met Scott when he was about 15 (Scott, not Bill). Scott was our resident “wild child”, and we loved him. Don’t get me wrong, he was no kind of “bad apple”, he was just an adventurous individual who wanted everyone to have a good time. When it came time to put down a few 40s of OE, Scott was the first guy to tap the bottle and twist the cap.
In March of 2000, two months before his 28th birthday, Scott decided that he couldn’t take everything that had piled up on him, and he ended his own life. The details surrounding the event no longer matter, only the memory of our dear friend. While creating this design, all I could think of was the days when the three of us (and the rest of the OG TBT Posse) would go hang out at the river and drink 40s. So THIS mug has a glaze that reminded me of the color of OE, and the red backfill reminded me of the label. And to this day, a 40 of OE reminds me of Bobo.
So, if you should decide to use this mug for beer, instead of coffee, please choose a 40 of OE800, and pour a little out for our friend Scott.
