.25 cents. You can't get much for .25 cents anymore. Not even a phone call. IF you can find a payphone that is.
But I found something I wanted, and yes, it only cost me .25 cents.
At a card show, one of the regular sellers brough a big box filled with small sets from the late '80s and early '90s. Mostly hockey. Stuff that really no one wants, but everyone had at one time when they were sure it was part of a well thought out retirement plan.
You know what I'm talking about.
1991 Score Young Superstars set.
1990 Classic set
1991 Upper Deck Hi number set.
1991 The Tuxedo set.
You get the drift. Nothing worth grabbing. In fact, it might be better if it was burnt for warmth.

How much is this package of goodness? .25 cents was the answer. And just like that, it was mine.
My buddy Brett asked me, "Are you going to open it?"
Hell yeah! It's mine now... not going anywhere.
Now I'll share it with you. Aren't you lucky? Of course you are. It's why you come here.

Like a lot of Kellogg's cards, they're oddball sized at 2 1/2" x 2 5/16"
See what I did there? Post cereal? Pops? As in Corn Pops?
