“Pin-Up” of the Week: Brett Favre 1994 Action Packed Badge of Honor

Action Packed has long been out of the sports collectibles business, but during the early to mid 90’s you could find their stuff all over the place.  In 1994 they produced a product called Badge of Honor.  Each pack contained four pins.  Just like a lot of sports collectibles of this time, they were overproduced to the max, and can be found today for very little money.  I say put old and rare pins into newer cards.

Flashback Product of the Week: 1997 Pinnacle Action Packed

Cards that felt like a pigskin.  That was the whole idea behind this product.  Just about every card in this set had some type of texture to it.  Most of them felt like the skin of a football.  In every box there were 24 packs, with 5 cards per pack.  One of the major highlights of this product was its 24kt gold cards.  I can remember buy a bunch of these at my local CVS when I first started collecting.  I think they need to bring back more cards with texture.  Its just a cool concept.
