Mego released two different Fishing outfits. The first outfit was included as part of the "Sports" Assortment.


The Fishing outfit comes with a brown or white plastic fishing net. The brown fishing net is much more common than the white net. Other than color, the nets are identical.

The Baseball outfit was released in black and red. The black uniform comes with long pants and small letters "A" and "J" on the front of the jersey (which are often missing).


The red uniform comes with short pants and no letters on the front of the jersey.

Both color uniforms have the number 5 on the back of the jersey.

The most common pattern is red/yellow/blue shapes, which was sold in the U.S. box. Depending on how the pattern was cut, the outfit can look mostly red, yellow, or blue.

Also released in the U.S. box (but less common) is the pink/purple/teal shapes pattern. Again, depending on how the pattern was cut, the outfit can look mostly pink, purple, or teal.

The pink/blue checkered pattern outfit was sold only in the U.K. Johnnie Jackson Box.

The blue/white checkered pattern can only be found on the red blister card.

The Surf and Scuba outfit on the red blister card came with a round mask instead of the regular oval mask.

There are two different surfboards. The regular surfboard is opaque orange, has an "AJ" sticker on it, and has one hole in the plastic (where the surf board was sewn to the card). The other (less common) surfboard is translucent orange, has no sticker, and has two holes molded into the plastic.

The flower pattern is by far the rarest. It was released in Germany as the Diver ("Taucher") outfit in a two pack with a red Frogman ("Froschmann") outfit.
