Wal-Mart Pizza included some cards last year. And if you want the Sandlot players from the movie, they're included in the DVD/Blu-Ray boxed set, I've been told. The biggest one I remember growing up was the gasoline company that was giving away packs of 1992 Fleer baseball with fill-ups.

And this year, Winn-Dixie was giving away 2 Star Wars "cosmic shells" for every $20 in groceries you bought.

This is a Roberto Clemente bank that was made by Caruth Candies after his death in 1972. It still has the original candy in it.

How about a full half gallon waxed paper carton of milk with a Lake To Lake Dairy card stapled to it! Probably none of those around.

Even if you could have cryogenically frozen it back then, and thawed it now, it would still be enough to knock you over if you were silly enough to drink it.

I have liquor decanters with the seal intact and the contents inside.

Much like the item above, it raises an interesting question of being able to sell alcohol when you try and unload it. My guess is it would be illegal for me to sell the decanter unless I emptied it. Correct?

Usually it's ok as long as you're selling to an adult.

Now if you had an entire pallet of those......that might be a bit different.

The rule in most states is that you can sell it as a collectible if the value of the collectible is much higher than just the liquor inside. Like, my sister has a bottle of Absolut Vodka (worth like $15 right in liquor) that is worth $400 or so because the artwork was by artist Romero Britto. That could be sold full to an adult because it has a collectible value over the liquor inside.

1977 RC Cans with cola in them
Bourbon decanters with the booze still in them
Bazooka boxes with the gum still in them


I still see Wheaties boxes with the cereal still in them. Why wouldn't there be a premium for such things?
I collect '71 Milk Duds in complete boxes. I can't imagine owning an unopened box of Milk Duds but I am sure there are some out there. Most collectors that collect Milk Dud boxes buy them empty and flattened (typically graded, but not always).

I love these food issues uncut and still in their natural habitat! I picked up a few of the empty complete Milk Dud boxes a few years back - seems strange to me that these turn up and are not terribly hard to find - I can't imagine little kids eating the Duds and then carefully unfolding and putting these away to keep them nice, especially in 1971, probably a good 10 or 15 years before the condition sensitivity of the hobby kicked in. Does anyone recall if a stock of unused boxes was found at some point? Despite the lack of color, I think they are pretty cool!
