A Collection a Day #59 – Buck Rogers trading card stickers, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
Man, did my mom hate these things. These stickers were included in the wax packs of trading cards and were more prized than the cards and even the gum. The manufacturers of these stickers used some kind of commercial-grade glue, ensuring that once the sticker was adhered to something, it was NEVER coming off.
I had these stickers on my walls, furniture, bicycle, and any other surface I could reach. If you find an old metal lunchbox at a yard sale or flea market, there’s a good chance it will have a few of these trading card stickers stuck to it … for all of eternity.
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
