This is the info card that came with the package, detailing its contents.
Bell Bottom Love T-Shirt – Value $15?
This is a Retro Pop Box exclusive item, so I’m guessing at the value. How cute is this tee? I kind of don’t want to wear it, I just want to look at it. In addition to the old fashioned style of the gents, it’s a mail order form, too, which is also a little piece of nostalgia from olden times.
Disco Dick’s Trucker Cap – Value $12?
I couldn’t find this online, so I’m guessing at the value here, too. This is pretty hilariously sleazy, but not my style at all, and I kind of didn’t want it in the house, either. My best friend happened to be over when I opened this, though, and she loved it. She wore it to work today!
Classic ‘Stache Beer Cozy – Value $9.99
At first I thought this was a pac-man ghost, and I got terribly confused, but of course it’s not. It’s the handlebar moustache! I love that it’s knit, too, because I don’t think they had foam koozies back in the 70’s, which does make this, in fact, a cozy. I think. Anyway, I love it, and we use beer insulators all the time here, especially in the summer, so this is perfect.
Razzles Candy – Value $1.29
I don’t remember this candy, so I think it was before my time. As you get older you become more and more grateful that things happened before your time. In any case, I did try a small piece, and it’s pretty gnarly. The kids liked it ok, but they are pretty sugar deprived at this point.
Authentic 70’s Topps Baseball Cards – Value ???
I remember baseball card collecting, and I know it progressed at least well into the 1980’s, and some people still collect them, I guess. I was never into it, but these are still pretty nostalgic and cool, and maybe it will spur the boys into some interest in baseball or anything other than video games. I don’t dare add a value to this item because I know how actual collectors get about values! I’m also not 100% sure what “authentic” means in this case.
Verdict: I love my 70’s Retro Pop Box! This month’s items were a little more male-centric than last month’s, but everything I received was really far out, man. Not counting the baseball cards, the value comes to about $38, which is great for a $25 box, but obviously the value lies more in the joy of reminiscence than the joy of the deal. Can you dig it?
