This Just In: Retro Trading Cards

Retro Trading Cards

Time for a new series here on the ‘squatch, This Just In. Inspired by Cool and Collected’s ‘It Came in the Mail’ posts, and by the fact that geeks love finding random junk, I decided it was time to start posting photos when I snag weird retro stuff. I troll eBay for the weirdest stuff, but when I was putting together the ‘Friends of Top Hat Sasquatch’ t-shirt presale, I realized I wanted some cool goodies to throw in to thank everyone for supporting the site, and I was lucky enough to score a huge lot of cards for a pretty good price.

There are 50 odd packs in total, but I love the art and wanted to show off some of my favorites. I’ll admit, I’m going to keep a few of these for myself, but if you have favorites, let me know when you order a shirt and I’ll try to accomodate everyone.

Just please, don’t eat the gum.

  • “I troll eBay for the weirdest stuff” – that sounds like a series of blog posts too! I’d read it, lol.

    Oh, and Dark Crystal for me please! If there’s a pack still left. Otherwise, surprise me. 🙂

    • You have no idea. One of the my biggest eBay disappointments ever was losing an auction for a Waffle House employee orientation VHS tape a few years back.

      • See, now that’s exactly the kind of thing I’m talking about. I live for that shit. There’s a bunch of old training videos on Cinemageddon; no Waffle House, though. (I just checked.) One of the funniest ones I’ve ever seen was for White Castle.

        • Nice! I’ll have to check that out.

  • Got my shirt! Excited to rock it in my next review. 🙂

    • Thanks! Have a preference on cards?
