This product ROCKS!!!  You would have to be STONED to enjoy it!!!

Cardz Distribution was founded by Ann Blake.  It later went on to become Playoff Corp.  Cardz was mostly known for making trading card sets for various entertainment properties.  They would make products based on T.V. shows and movies.  Some of their products include Tom & JerryThe MaskTerminator 2: Judgement DayMaverick, and The Muppets.  Sometimes they would combine two properties in one.  That’s the case when it comes to 1993 Cardz The Flintstones NFL.

“Let’s put the Flintstones in NFL uniforms.”  This is not something you hear card manufacturers saying today.  But it looks like in 1993 it certainly was.  Cardz put the Muppets in NHL uniforms, so why not team the Flintstones up with the NFL.  It only seems like the most logical thing to do.

This product consists of 110 cards geared highly towards children.  Or perhaps just really big Flintstones fans.  All of the characters are represented in one way or another.  Cards to look for include the holograms and tekchrome.  They also made cards that you could color.  None hold much value today.  Boxes can be found for under $20.00.
