OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Tam

Received From: Marc Baldewijns
Print or Image Color: Red, Blue
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
Another excellent TAM bag, this one sporting pictograms lined up as if part of a bowling alley, where the 2 and 3 pins have been knocked down.

Tam Mercosur

Received From: Britta Bebensee
Print or Image Color: Red, Silver
Background / Bag Color: White
This plastic bag is rather shiny and generic. Has Portuguese, English, and Spanish, plus a very slight windfoil direction field that covers the silver portion. Can't really tell it's from TAM at all.

Tam Mercosur

Print or Image Color: Red, White
Background / Bag Color: White, Red
Yet another excellent TAM bag, this has the Frogger-like tire track on the left, but it also mentions Mercosur, which is a Regional Trade Agreement between Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Paraguay.

This bag is identical to the other TAM Mercosur bag except that the draw string is now red instead of white.

Tam Mercosur

Excellent bag with the back half of a plane pictured on the front.

Tam Mercosur

Received From: Federico Mandrile
Print or Image Color: White
Background / Bag Color: Red Plastic
This plastic bag is rather generic. Has Portuguese, English, and Spanish, plus a very slight windfoil direction field that covers the lower portion. Can't really tell it's from TAM at all, unless you are a connoisseur of Tam Mercosur bags and then it's obvious.

Identical to the other Tam Red bags except this has a red block on the back.

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 1984
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue Plastic
Same as the 1987 version except much darker

Tame

Received From: Steve Thompson
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue Plastic
Ecuadorian bag similar to all other Tame bags through time, except they decided to change the manufacturer to Montgar (see bottom left).

Tame

Received From: Richard David Glueck
Background / Bag Color: Dark Blue Plastic
Ecuadorian bag similar to all other Tame bags through time, except this one is devoid of manufacturer name.

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Dave Wilson
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Same as the 1984 version except much lighter

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Rik Anderson
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Finally, Tame decided to add the word Ecuador to its bag, displaying national pride in doing so. Bag says, "Alas para la integracion" which I think means "I give up at Calculus".

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2004
Received From: Fredy Thürig
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Still much the same bag as 20 years ago, however, the company name is no longer subordinate to the logo.

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Light Blue Plastic
Same as it ever was, except now the manufacturer is Montegar (see lower left).

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2010
Received From: Rainer Schwartz
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Looks very much the same as it did in the 80s except for the reverse "negative" colors. For some reason, the bag mentions SAB Catering Service (as the culprit for getting you sick no doubt).

Tame

Received From: Kim Decker
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Blue Plastic
Montgar starts getting full of themselves and now prominently display their name centered on the bag higher up than before.

Tame

Received From: George MacNaughton
Print or Image Color: Blue, Navy, Gold
Background / Bag Color: White, Blue
At some point in the internet era (I'm still trying to figure out when) Tame started selling bag space to Güitig, the Ecuadorian sparkling water company. However, this bag has a white plastic flap on the front that covers Tame's own advertising copy. You actually have to barf (or open the flap) to see the following:

Aviones realmente nuevos
alta technologia * alta seguridad * alta comodidad
Which means
Really New Airplanes
High technology * High comfort * High Security

Tame

Approximate Vintage: 2015
Received From: Dan Shafto
Print or Image Color: Navy, Blue, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: White Plastic
Over the span of 30 years, Tame has changed the way it displays the airline name from all caps to all lower case.

TAME

Received From: Andrew Angel
Print or Image Color: Navy
Background / Bag Color: Blue Plastic
This bag differs from all the other early 80s TAME bags because it says "Empaques Calidad Montegar" low on the bag. The only problem with Calidad Montegar is that it means Montegar Quality, of which there is little. For example, at the very bottom right of the bag, they misspell Montegar as Montgar. Plus the entire bag is off-register and not centered as other versions of TAME are.

Tan Generic

Approximate Vintage: 1995
Received From: Ron Frashure
Print or Image Color: Brown
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Used on Exel and Air Antarctica among others
