oh boy... the notorious flippo... I think I still got some stashed away hoping for them to gain tremendously in value....

some even in the original wrappers.... the crisps in that same wrapper might be a bit stale though........

^ hahahha! that sounds like an awesome one!

I dont remember what the packages looked like that the pogs came in... I remember stores always having the tubes. maybe they were in bins like Pinkie said when I used to buy them. My brother and me collected them but never played to win them with friends. What was cool is how some products or stores had their own pogs for free. Kids love free stuff. For Christmas one year my brother and me got the little machine that made your own pogs. THAT was legit! ;D

Pogs were good times. Used to stack em as high as possible, like a 17 inch column
and play from across the room : D

I've got a whole bunch of them in my room. I pulled them out and showed my friend the other day, and my sister's boyfriend and we had fun for a whole of 5 minutes and left the huge mess and went away.

I remember how mad people would get and the near fights that broke when you won a pog off someone that they did not want to part with. Fun memories.

For some reason, I think our entire town was devoid of Pogs and anything they may or may not have stood for.

I never heard of them until I found out about them on the Internet a year or two ago.
