We often played “Colors” with baseball cards. You would flip your cards vs. an opponent and depending how the colors of the team logos appeared, one or the other player won a certain number of cards from the other. I guess it was a little like poker. East Flatbush, 1960’s
Remember the mars Attacks cards? I remember trading someone a pen, a dollar, and some baseball cards for the whole set…wish I still had them. When we had the drills where we had to “make like a turtle and crawl into a ball under your desk” in school, I would wonder if we were under attack.
I had a really cool bracelet with plastic charms on it… I recently gave it to a kid I know. I can’t remember whether or not I bought it, or if the charms came separate. It has a hot dog, a Special K cereal box, a little dog, a rollerskate I think, a teacup… Not sure what else.
