MyScienceMind on InstagramOn Saturday, I visited @theboxsf, an outrageous treasure trove of printed ephemera. If you love typography, illustration, nostalgia, or just huge collections created with passion, you really need to visit this place! These cardboard milk bottle caps, also known as pogs, became the impetus for the 90s kids collecting game. Sort of a cardboard Pokemon, before Pokemon went digital, although kids were playing “pogs” (now copyrighted by a toy company) in the 1920s. These are about to become ephemera stickers in my Etsy store, @owlettebleu. If you click over there, you’ll see that I’m also running a Labor Day Giveaway. Scroll back through my posts to see the giveaway rules.Happy Dog Day, Mack!
