New Addition To The Museum: Boy With The Leaking Boot Trading Card

You’ll notice right off the bat that the photo above doesn’t bear that cheesy “shot all crooked against a black backdrop” look that most of the other items in The Strange & Spooky Museum have. That’s because this item was so small, I needed to scan it in so you could bask in all its glorious details.

This piece is about the size of your standard trading card. In fact, it’s part of a set that was released by Dart Flipcards in 1995 in conjunction with Hershey Food Corporation. Taking a peek at the back of the card, you can see that the set was called Hershey’s Trading Cards: The Collector’s Series and that this particular card was #42 in the set:

I did a little digging online and found that this set consisted of 100 cards and was released to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Hershey’s. As for the cards themselves, they feature all the different tasty treats Hershey’s has offered over the years. Oh yeah, and one infamous boy with a leaking boot!

You can get some additional information on the card set here.
