Here we are now, entertain us … this new toy just might do that.
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is among a trio of new Funko Pop! Rocks toys revealed on Monday and he’ll be found in a few ways once the new wave of toys arrives next year.
Joining him won’t be the other two members of the iconic 1990s band, but instead a pair of big stars from the past.
When the news broke that former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland had died at age 48 on Thursday night, the chatter online turned to the memorable songs of the band that was a memorable one for a stretch in the 1990s.
Naturally, Buzz wondered if he had any trading cards — knowing that rock n’ roll and cardboard have never really meshed in the past save for a few forgettable releases in the early 1990s. It turns out Weiland had a single cut autograph produced in modest quantity from a major company. In 2009, Upper Deck made 23 copies of a card with a cut auto. For the record, it’s in the 2009 Upper Deck Prominent Cuts Cut Signatures set and just a single one had been sold in recent months. (Its low-quality image is seen here.)
That got Buzz brainstorming … which definitively 1990s rockers should have a certified autograph card?
