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?

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

  1. “I kind of didn’t want it in my house either” made me laugh but not as much as hearing your friend wore it for all the world to see! Another fun, informative and honest review from Anna–thank you!
    I was a kid in the 70s and feel no nostalgia for any of this….it’s as if they are finding odd items to sort of-kind of fit in the decade. For $25 there isn’t anything I would want or keep. Maybe they need to be gender specific!?

  2. I was born in 1958, so spent my teens in the 1970s. None of this stuff sparked any nostalgia for me at all.

    • I spent my kid years in the 70 s and I feel the same way; it doesn’t feel like something from the decade, just random stuff with an older vibe. For $25 is there one thing you would want to have or keep? Maybe they should specify “Guy Stuff” in the description?

  3. Where does your friend work? I don’t think any of my bosses would be down with a Disco Rick hat lol.

    • Lol even my autocorrect did not find that appropriate.

      • Haha! I know, right Joy? She’s some kind of super genius so I guess she can wear whatever she wants.

    • I was going to ask the same thing. I’m so curious!

  4. Anna, you get the most bizarre boxes to review!! I often click the review, see ‘Posted By Anna’ and think, ‘Oh boy, here we go!’ Between the weird stuff in the boxes, and your commentary, your reviews are usually my favorite. Thank you!

    • Lol, thanks Annie! That makes my day!
