I really like the pink & green color scheme they were using in the old days
This is a bit of a tangent, but as a kid I spent summers with my grandparents in Arkansas, and I distinctly remember one summer in the early 2000's (I think it was 2003). We went to a grocery store in Huntsville, AR, and they had one of those machines in the lobby where you put in a couple quarters and a little toy comes out in a plastic capsule, and one of those machines sold these exact buttons. They came three buttons to a capsule, I believe. Naturally, as a Simpsons fan I jumped on collecting them, and I think I got nine or so different buttons. But even as an 11/12 year old kid, I could tell that the buttons were very old, like 1990 old, and I found it super odd that they were still available in a grocery store vending machine. For all I know that machine had sat largely untouched since the early nineties.
A little late, but it seems like the Homer magnet was based off a cut, extending ending to Homer's Odyssey:
That's actually a good point here. However, it is kind of weird that the Season 1 DVD boxset does not have the blue color scheme and was instead silver. However, the 4th season did have a blue color scheme. To be honest, it could've been better if the Season 1 DVD boxset have any of these color schemes because it would have make more sense, as Seasons 1-3 has more of a neon feel and was the most popular era of the show in terms of viewers, despite "Lisa's First Word", the most popular Season 4 episode, later reaching to over 28 million viewers, which makes it more popular than Season 3's most popular episode, "Colonel Homer", which had over 25 million viewers.I like how a lot of things were overtly neon colored with a lot of light greens, pinks and blues back in the late 80's-early 90's. Maybe that explains why the Season 2 and Season 3 DVDs were light greenish-blue and pink respectively? I haven't really thought about it before.
I don't remember exactly how much, but definitely under 25$
Where did you find that table draft?A little late, but it seems like the Homer magnet was based off a cut, extending ending to Homer's Odyssey:

This made it to at least an October 16th, 1989 script before getting cut. Don't know if it ever got to color.
