O.J. Simpson: Still Searching For the Real Killer?

This is probably the weirdest piece of 90s memorabilia I own. Some enterprising folks decided to combine the O.J. Simpson trial with pogs. "I'll trade you a white Ford Bronco for Kato Kaelin on Larry King!"

I remember being really interested in the trial and watching updates on the news every day while eating dinner.

Beverly Hills, 90210 Trading Cards: #1 Rock 'n' Roll High School

The title of this card is pretty lame though. "Rock 'n' Roll High School"? Having young people & a character like Dylan instantly makes it rockin' I guess
