Hargitay's Health Glow

Plenty of Iron Game fans know that Mickey Hargitay won the 1955 Mr. Universe contest and married Jayne Mansfield but almost nobody (including yours truly) knew that Mr. Hargitay had his own name brand set of weights.

There aren’t many of these around although after quite a bit of digging, we were able to find out that these weights were actually cast in nearby Jackson, Michigan, which solved the mystery of how they ended up in a sporting good store just a few miles down the road

In a stroke of luck, we managed to find near a complete set–when is the last time you saw a 15 lb. barbell plate? The “hockey puck” shape of these plates is pretty distinctive — we haven’t seen anything like them elsewhere — so some thought definitely went into their design.
