I'd love to serve a meal on nothing but these crappy collector's plates, but I'm afraid the paint would be toxic and leech into the food.

Wow, what a great investment.
.75 in 1989 dollars, which amounts to a little over in 2012 dollars (the most recent date you're allowed to input in the first Inflation Calculator that shows up on Google).
On eBay, the exact plate shown is going for as low as .99. http://goo.gl/Fi4nqa
I wonder what Burger King Goonies tumblers go for now, mine broke years ago.
@Old Zircon: If they're anything like the tumblers made today, they were probably loaded with cadmium, so you might be better off without 'em.

The preview image looks like he's wearing blackface.
I thought it made it look like his face had been pushed an inch to one side on his skull.

I called the number. It's a national telemarketing company. I was bounced around by a recording for a moment, but then reached a representative. He introduced himself as Colby in the smarmiest voice I've ever heard. I asked him about the plates. He said that his company is a third party telemarketing service; the company owns the number and will pick up when it is called, but that there is no product or service currently associated with it. He also informed me that because 1800 numbers are finite in number, they're traded like commodities and could have changed hands several times since 1989.
