McQ is the third mug that was made by Ketchum Originals, located at 1105 Long Beach Blvd, Long Beach, Ca. There was a promotional McQ mug made, that was sold in gift shops at Universal Studios the Movieland Wax Museum and others. The promotional mug can easily be distinguished from the genuine cast and crew mug as it was done on a slightly different mug and does not have the gold handle. The promotional mugs also have value, on Aug. 16, 2022 there were five of them listed on Ebay ranging in price from $250 -$399. At the same time however someone was asking $7500 for one of the authentic McQ cast and crew mugs.
