Plastic Addict

Marvin Paul owns 4500 flying discs, and fondly refers to his collection as "Frisbee Museum Plasticus Addictus." Marvin's online collection ranges from pie tins (Frisbie's Bakery) to early sport discs (Wham-O vs Discraft chart).  Marvelling at the early origins of disc-shaped plastic toys is a great reminder of innovation, playfulness, and Wham-O's integral contribution!

Anyone who loves chasing plastic will appreciate the vast disc history at Some collection gems:
