Wax Pack Flashback: Ghostbusters II Trading Cards from 1989

It’s time to pull another pack of old cards from the vault and rip them open to see what we find inside.  With Halloween right around the corner, I turned to a pack that is somewhat appropriate for the season, and selected Ghostbusters II cards from 1989.  Produced by Topps, this was a 99 card set featuring scenes from the movie.  Well, 88 cards and 11 stickers.

As part of any good marketing machine from that time period, a set of trading cards were produced to capitalize on the anticipated success of the movie.  These cards really hold no value in modern times, except for things like this post.  So if you never had any of these cards, or if you did and just want to refresh your memory on them, check out the scans below.

Listen to Me on Banzai Retro Club’s Podcast on Old Trading Cards

Recently I had the opportunity to sit in with Dave on an episode of his Banzai Retro Club Podcast to talk about old non-sports trading cards.  As you know, I’m a big fan of old cards, so I was ecstatic when I got the invite.  We spend well over an hour discussing everything from Marvel Universe cards to New Kids on the Block cards, and all the way back to Smurfs Super Cards.  There’s a lot of fun talk and plenty of informative discussion that you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from if you ever collected any kind of cards.  Check it out by clicking on the graphic below.

Then head on over to my Twitter page to enter the contest we mention on the show where YOU can win a grab bag full of old unopened packs of cards!  Just head over to @yesterdayville for all the details.
