Flashback Product of the Week: 1992 Topps Kids

Photobucket

Up until this product came along, baseball cards weren’t for kids ūüôā ¬†Before 1992 Topps Kids was released, it was illegal for children to open packs of cards. ¬†Finally, kids didn’t have to sneak into dark allies in the middle of the night to fulfill their pack busting crave. ¬†Now they could easily walk into their local card shop and open a pack or two just like everyone else.

I seriously don’t know what Topps was thinking when they thought up this product. ¬†I guess they were just trying to make cards look more kid friendly. ¬†The last thing kids want to be treated like is kids. ¬†The set consists of 132 cards that all have some type of cartoonish element to them. ¬†Perhaps Topps was trying to cash in on all the cartoonish success Upper Deck was having at the time with their Comic Ball releases. ¬†I think we all know how popular those became ūüôā ¬†You can still find wax boxes for under $20.00.

This card is hilarious. ¬†Its almost as if Topps knew about Bonds’s steroid use before it became such a huge deal.

OYO – Your Favorite Player Has Been Minifigured

Photobucket

It doesn’t matter how old you are, its ok to admit that minifigures are awesome!  OYO Sports Toys have turned some of your favorite athletes into minifigure form.  Having yourself turned into a minifigure is almost an honor, just like seeing your favorite athlete turned into a character on Family Guy or The Simpsons.

One of the best things about their minifigures is the fact they are completely compatible with other building products like LEGOs. ¬†Having a feature like that is great because building toys such as LEGOs are very popular and trying to create your own building product to compete wouldn’t work that well. ¬† According to the OYO website, it looks like they make minifigures for the Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals, and Rangers. ¬†It also looks as if they have plans to make minifigures for football, hockey, and more sports. ¬†These just aren’t cheap knock-offs either, they have all the proper licenses to use the team names and logos. ¬†I like how they just didn’t slap a team logo on a generic minifigure too. ¬†They took their time and concentrated on the individual facial features as well. ¬†Very cool!

Christmas isn’t too far away, and if you have a young sports fan these might be right up their ally. ¬†Don’t forget about Bleacher Creatures and Lil’ Teammates too.

You can follow OYO Sports Toys on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.  Ever wonder what it would be like to see Shane Victorino fly a spaceship?  Well now you can.

You can find these at MLB.com, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Sports Authority.
