Opening a Pack of Nintendo Trading Cards from 1989

On a whim last week I began searching online for some puffy stickers of NES characters I loved as a kid. I couldn’t find the stickers, but I did find an Amazon seller who was selling these Nintendo “GamePacks,” so I decided to order one. Well, the pack arrived yesterday, and after a (brief) moment of hesitation, I opened it up.

First thing I noticed was the smell. Turns out 27 year-old trading cards don’t offer the most fragrant aroma when unsealed.

I kept them away from my nose and moved on.

The first three cards were “Game Cards,” which are a fairly novel idea (even though they are essential prizeless scratch-off lottery tickets for children).

Next came the two sticker cards, with TOP SECRET TIPS on the back!

I need to find someplace special to put these Punch-Out stickers!
