For Your Hi-Balls (A Coaster Set)
(click image to enlarge)
Another find at the Root's Country Market & Auction. Believe me when I say that I had no idea that the "coasters" were a combination mini-jockstrap and drink cozy! That sealed the deal, for sure, and the "set of pick me ups" immediately became mine. Regretfully there's no date or company information whatsoever while a Google search for "kings hi jockstrap coasters" revealed nothing!
