Collector’s items and memorabilia

Collector’s items and memorabilia
If you can remember big, pink sticks of bubble gum that were so hard and brittle they usually broke into dozens of pieces before you could get them into your mouth, you must surely remember where you got them. They came in packs of hockey trading cards. Though they may not be quite as popular today, hockey cards were all the rage in the late 1960s to the early 1980s and your childhood was surely deprived if you weren’t involved in the wheeling and dealing of them.
When kids were trading cards on school playgrounds at recess decades ago only a few words were usually needed. "Got em, got em, got em, need em, got em." I'd hate to be the one to tell you now that all of those hours spent playing general manager weren't really necessary as you can now buy whole sets of cards by the year they were produced. Still there are some cards out there that are hard to find and are classified as high priced collector’s items.
