Wax Pack Flash Back: American Gladiators 1991 Topps Trading Cards

It’s time for another Wax Pack Flash Back, and this time, the subject is a pack of American Gladiators trading cards produced by Topps from 1991.  These cards were based on the hit television show, American Gladiators.  If just seeing these photos of the cards aren’t enough for you, you can watch me open a pack and discuss the cards on my YouTube video here.

Retro Rewind Episode 12 – Opening a Pack of Batman Cards from 1989

Batman Trading Cards

 

Recently, I filmed another episode of my Retro Rewind show for YouTube, and it is another trading card wax pack opening.  The specimen this time out is a pack of Batman 2nd Series cards from 1989.  This card set was based on the mega-hit Batman movie that came out that year, and surprisingly, has a lot of cards that feature production shots and photos.  There are still action shots from the actual movie, but not as many as I would have thought.

So anyway, you can watch the video below where I open and go through the pack.  I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please use the “Like” button, and subscribe to the channel.

 

Opening Old Packs of Baseball Cards

Baseball Cards

With a new season of baseball starting, I find myself reminiscing about the good old days of collecting and trading baseball cards with my friends.  It was an annual summer event in our little neighborhood, and probably the most fun thing about the hobby, was opening a new pack of cards.

You never knew what you would find inside, even though your were always hopeful of getting a superstar card, a rookie card, or some special insert.  Well, to relieve that fun feeling, I pulled some old packs of cards out of my collection and opened them.  I filmed the opening of each pack, and though you might enjoy seeing what treasures were found inside.  If that tickles your fancy, watch the videos below, and then feel free to leave a comment sharing your own memories of tearing open a new wax pack.
