Clubing - you found the same Zack Morris we did! I was so excited when I found it bc it was our last item and was hoping for it to count ... but then jmbohler had to find the real thing. Pssshh...
Lol! I assumed it had to be the actual phone (after they said it had to be like the meme that got posted) or i would have just ordered that one to get it lol! That one really was not that hard if I had known what to look for! There was a broadcasting/telecommunications museum not far from me... but instead I went to every antique store within like 30 miles of me, and there are A LOT! Lol, lessons learned for next year
I feel you! I can't tell you how many awkward conversations I had with antiques shop owners about the phone before we finally found the collector. I knew early what a Zack Morris phone was, it just took us a while to actually find it.
I'll be honest, I thought it was going to be unfindable - which is why I was desperately posting trying for the half point. I also thought the triplets were going to be unfindable until you found them, It pushed me to work harder... and whew, talk about an awkward conversation. Having to ask a family to take a picture of their triplet toddlers??
I knew where to get a Zack Morris phone for sure, but wasn't willing to drive 2+ hours to get there (http://www.savedbythemax.com/
- they have an area with props and stuff, and thanks to a youtube channel I knew for sure they had a Zack Morris phone.) I also saw a couple for sale but couldn't bring myself to ask people if I could meet up just to take a picture with the item they were selling. I tried museums from the start, but couldn't find anything at all locally (within an hour drive or so) that would have one (I found cell phone museums in Europe online!).
One museum I asked at I told the guy I was looking for an "old school cell phone" because he was too young to fully understand "Zack Morris phone" when I told him and he went back to ask the lady and he ended up telling her I was looking for an "antique cell phone" and she came out looking at me like I was stupid and said, "There's no such thing as an antique cell phone." Oy. LOL
