Flashback to 1983 with me, when D&D was hitting the mainstream something large. I distinctly remember buying D&D candies at the local convenience store. Each box of candy had a “trading card” on the back (there weren’t many, I had a total of three different cards cut out from 8 boxes). I wish I could find them now, but 28 years ago was… well… 28 years ago.

But here’s the cards I remember so distinctly (I don’t remember much about the candy – I think they were basically flavourless sugarbombs, like the candy pellets I got inside the Boba Fett helmets I was buying around the same era). Thanks to http://www.tomeoftreasures.com for keeping an archive of such things.
