Alf Trading Cards

Earlier this year on the Retroist I mentioned that I don’t collect trading cards. Since then, I’ve purchased and/or written about Ghostbusters II Trading Cards, a set of Star Wars Heritage Cards, the May the Fourth Trading Card Set and now these. Apparently I need to rethink my anti-card collecting stance.

Released by Topps in the late 1980s, two different series of Alf trading cards were released. As you can see, for $8.95, I picked up a complete set of the first. The best thing about buying these cards is that I discovered that my kids did not know who Alf was. We are in the process of rectifying that.

One thought on “Alf Trading Cards

  1. My 3 year old son knows who ALF is… Thanks to the HUB and my ALF collectables in my room… ;^) (specifically the mask and the various stuffed animals I have)
