In 1999, a flick with Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone called Blast From The Past came out. It was about a scientist named Calvin Webber who was played by Christopher Walken, that took his pregnant wife in a deep underground fallout shelter in 1962 when he thought a nuclear war was imminent. During that time, their son Adam played by Fraser (who seemed to had been in every late 90's movie) was born and was exposed to only the culture of 1962 in the shelter such as the music and TV shows of the time. Life was accustomed to not being at the surface.
Fast forward 35 years later, their supplies and food was running low
so someone would have to come above ground and take a risk to get new
products. That was supposed to be Calvin, up until he was ill from
stress from his one visit to the surface. So his son Adam would have to
venture out in a world he had never met.....
This segment takes a look at products that may have been hidden in a
underground fallout shelter for over 20 years and now just coming back
out to be rediscovered....by me. Guess you can call me Adam even though
my name is Matt. These are products I opened when I was first collecting
and is a Part Of My Past, but may not have a memory or a Origins story
to attach to them. Most products I post on here will, but some won't and
those will be covered in this new segment.These products will be
between the years of 1995-1999 only.
Let's just hope my experience with these breaks is better than Adams first visit to the surface.
So let's take a Blast From The Past with a one pack break of 1995 Playoff Prime Football!
I didn't open more than a pack of this product, mainly because Playoff was limited in my area as opposed to Topps and Score, but I did get to experience it. It was in 1996 when Playoff became more prevalent in my area.
Well, I got this pack for roughly $1 so not much to lose here. More of a gain. Not a great pack in terms of players, but not a terrible rip for the memories of some of the players and ones I collected.
Stay tuned for more time travel breaks that have come from under the bunkers!
