FEATURED TOY:
90's Happy Meal toys were so much cooler than today's. You combine transforming dinosaurs with your favorite kids food and you got a winner.

I found today's item in a free box at a yard sale. Mint condition. These aren't worth much more than memories, but that's all I need.

It looks like a burger...


Then you pull out once side...


Then the other and you get a fierce monster!


FEATURED CARDS: Today's theme has to do with food and dinosaurs who had a monstrous appetite. So when searching for cards for today, I came upon some Steve McNair rookie cards from 1995 and thought this was a good fit.

Steve was Someone who had a monstrous appetite for the field. He was not only a great passing QB, but the guy was a dual threat as a runner too. Not to mention tough and helped lead the Titans to the Super Bowl falling just a yard shy of possibly winning the Big Game.

I bought a ton of 1995 Pinnacle. I loved the inserts, Museum Collection cards and the base card design and photography in general.


Sport Flix...now if you can only focus your eyes after.


Fleer Metals debut. Was a great line for some time.
 

What other players do you think had a monstrous appetite for the field in the 90's?

  2. I think I got that hamburger when it was new! I have not seen it in years now but I'm sure it's somewhere in storage, waiting to be refound.
