What’s Buzz-worthy: This one stood out as a highlight to me earlier this year — just for the fun of it — so it’s here once again. This pack is pushing 40 but the tales of Jack Tripper, Janet Wood and Chrissy Snow remain ageless and this simple product is one that totally follows a super-simple template — albeit one where the stickers are the cards and vice versa — that works.  Four of the stickers in this pack were campy studio shots — no studio audience, though — and one showed a scene with the three ironing in the living room.  This could be a fun set to build out of packs since it’s so small and they’re so cheap, but you can also pick up the set for not much more than a few packs at this price. High-grade singles (10s) of these cards can command some pretty decent money, too. It’d be fun to build one of these sets in graded form.
