My First Pack of Classic Toys Trading Cards

Classic Toys Trading CardsI went to my favorite comic book store today (Outer Limits in Waltham, MA) just to have a look around and I found these cards that I have never heard of before. They are called Classic Toys Trading Cards and the wrapper says:

 

...a nostalgic look back at the most popular toys of the 50's, 60's and 70's. Each card highlights classic toy favorites - monsters, rock and roll, space, westerns, T.V. related, action figures, dolls, cartoons, and super heroes.

There are only 7 cards in a pack and I only bought one pack since I didn't really know what they would be like (they only cost $.99). After opening them up I decided that I really like them!

The 7 cards that I got are: Tarzan Lunchbox, Mechanized Robot, Shirley Temple Paper Dolls, View-master Sets, Lost in Space Game, Have Gun Will Travel Game and Green Ghost Game. My favorites are the Mechanized Robot and the Green Ghost Game (simply based on the pictures and nostalgic feeling I got when looking at them).

The only thing I know about this game is that it was featured on an episode of the Toy Hunter TV show and the host really liked it when he found it. I'm a big fan of old school board games like this, especially ones that incorporate elements like this big glow in the dark ghost.

The back of each card has a short description of the toy and gives the copyright year and company that produced the toy (great for doing further research!)

The cards are numbered and it appears that there are 66 cards in all. I enjoyed this set so I will buy more and try to collect all of them.

 

It's been a long time since I've bought any kind of trading cards but this set has rekindled my interest. It's a relatively inexpensive way to get my collecting fix and seeing all the old toys is nice too. I'm really glad I picked these up!
