Learned that patch lesson in the late 80s. I had an authentic Revenge of the Jedi patch from the Star Wars Fan Club (maybe even still Bantha Tracks?) and cherished it, only to learn a few years later when SW stuff became collectable (pre-internet, printed-price-guide-era) that even though it was the real deal, it likely wasn't worth much because it was such an easy item to reproduce and there was no way to prove its authenticity. Gotta dig thru all my junk, I've probably still got it around here somewhere.

edit: wagonguy Doug tells me Thruster has been in Walmart for years.  

 

I think this 3 bar design is something new though and maybe is an attempt to re-launch the brand.

I know, these are my favourite stem of all time. I've ran one on my Champion for around six years and it's survived all the abuse i've ever given it.
