Well for me I think the Partridge Family were the first that I really collected along with Wacky Packages. After that it was almost everything:
Star Trek ( 1976 )
Superman The Movie
Empire Strikes Back
Hulk tv series
Return of the Jedi
Batman ( the 1st movie )
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Almost everything is gone now. My collecting ended during the Return of the Jedi. Those were good times and I've been thinking about them recently myself and was think about doing a post about them. It was so much fun being able to go to a local Mom & Pop store and pick up a pack of cards, sports or non sports for .15 -.35 cents a pack. Now-a-days IF you can find cards being sold somewhere, they cost $2.00 - 3.00 a pack - the fun of being a kid is gone, it's a collector world now in cards and toys.
He who dies with the most toys wins!
