Retro Pop Box is a subscription service that sends pop culture items and relics from your favorite decade! My favorite decade is the 1970’s. I was barely alive then, but I love the fashion and culture from that era. They also offer an 80’s box, and the 90’s box is currently available for pre-order!

This is the info card that came with the package, detailing its contents.

Sanford & Son T-Shirt – Value $15?

This t-shirt is so awesome in so many different ways… First of all, Sanford and Son was obviously an epic comedic opus that has withstood the test of time brilliantly. Second, I love the truck and the reference to the show without having some cheesy print of the characters. It’s about the actual junk shop! Third, I love the color. And finally, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that the tees from Retro Pop Box are available in ladies’ sizes, and they have a nice, flattering cut.

CB Action Magnet – Value $6?

This magnet is a Retro Pop Box exclusive, so the value is an estimate. I vaguely remember the CB craze and all the Smokey & the Bandit trucking madness from when I was a tot, but I did not know that there was actually a magazine from that era called CB Action. Neat!

Pink Floyd Shot Glass – Value $4.99

Wow, Pink Floyd is such a timeless band, I kind of forgot they were affiliated with the 1970’s. I love them, though, especially this lesser-known track from 1971, so I am happy to have this shot glass.

Battle of the Sexes Exclusive Print – Value $5?

I find it odd that this print doesn’t have the year on it! I’ve never really cared about sports or tennis at all, so although I suspect this whole tennis thing might have been before my time, I’m not sure.

Land of the Lost Funko Nodniks Figures – Value 4.99

There’s no way for me to really express my joy over having received these little guys. The Land of the Lost was one of my favorite shows as a kid, and it’s remained an unusually important part of my adult life. Suffice to say, these are wonderful!

Verdict: I love my 70’s Retro Pop Box! This month has been my favorite so far! I loved everything I got except maybe the tennis print, and it’s all so retro-licious! The value this month is around $36, which is far out, man.

What do you think of the 70’s box from Retro Pop Box? What’s your favorite decade?

  1. Fun review, and as a kid I remember these things but I don’t think I would use a single one. Also I don’t need odd items sitting around gathering dust, but cheers to the person who gets a kick out of this nostalgia trip!

  2. Yaaas! CBs were a big deal back in the day… My ‘handle’ was Hot-to-Trot and my best friend was Foxy Lady. Now you know all my shameful secrets 😉

  3. I got the 90s box this month and was very disappointed. Didn’t care for a single thing in the box

  4. The Battle of the secrets with Billie Jean was 1973.

  5. The tennis match was 1973 and of enormous importance to women’s sports. Riggs was a pig and the majority of the world believed a woman could not beat a man at that time. King was integral to the formation of the Woman’s Tennis Association and the fight for equal pay. It was part of the overall women’s liberation movement of the seventies.

  6. Event posters usually don’t have the year since they only happen once. I’m glad they kept it more authentic.

  7. Bobby Riggs/Billie Jean King’s tennis match was a watershed moment for women in sport. I think it happened before I was born or was very small but it Riggs’ basically said women tennis players could never stand up to men. She proved him wrong.

    • Great history lesson, thanks!! ?
