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 1996-1997 Pinnacle Mint Hockey!
In the 1990's, one of my favorite sports to collect was hockey believe it or not. Hockey cards is what got me into this great hobby. However, it's much different today. Football is my main sport by far with hockey being the least. Baseball is second with basketball a further third (mostly due to licensing)
But, when playing on eBay one day, I was looking for some packs of Pinnacle Mint to rip and I came across a seller who was selling five packs for $5 or so. I couldn't turn that down so I jumped on it and here we are today. I left four of the packs sealed for fun and ripped just this one.
Here is the pack itself. They used to go for $2.49 which I think is pretty cheap for cards and coins. Each one came with 2 cards, one base and one with a coin slot, and one coin.
Here is an overall at look at what you can find, Silver Team Cards 30 Cards 1:23 Packs - Gold Team Card 30 Cards 1:72 Packs - Nickel/Silver Coins 30 Coins 1:30 Packs - Gold Plated Coins 30 Coins 1:72 Packs - Fine Silver Coin 30 Coins 1:5,077 - 24KT Gold Coin 30 Coins 1:51,641 Packs
This was a really fun break. I need to find some baseball and football now to at least rip a pack of. I broke a box of football a few years ago. I think this product was a genius idea with crossing over two hobbies and it gave us more options to choose from. Not something we get today.
Hope you enjoyed this Blast From The Past!
