After 31 Years It Was Time To Open Up That Pack Of Dark Crystal Cards!

  • PLEASE FOLLOW THE RETROIST

The Dark Crystal Card Packaging
Last week I happened to stumble across several unopened packs of cards from 1982′s The Dark Crystal at a local Anime store, I went in expecting to find My Neighbor Totoro items…not dreaming I would find some 31 year old retro treasure!

The packaging as you can see in the image above is in pretty good shape and I made sure to check it over just in case this was a reprinting that I hadn’t come across before. It certainly appeared to be legit and the price tag on just one pack was five bucks so I decided to take the chance.

So this afternoon it was with all of the pomp and circumstance usually reserved for the excavation of a lost tomb or ruin that I carefully opened a pack of cards that had waited 31 years to fall into a Jim Henson fan’s hands and to be shared with all of you.

    Thanks, friends! I’m planning on going back in a couple of weeks to see if I can’t pick up any more of the cards. I will back you up on that statement by the way, Dex! :)
