A guy from Antipolo showed off his collection of 90’s childhood memorabilia.
Calling all ‘Batang 90’s”! A guy has painstakingly collected three boxes full of memorabilia that will remind you of your childhood days. Many 90’s kids will feel nostalgic looking at his collection of Pinoy cards.
Vhin Retiro’s collection will surely take you down memory lane. He has boxes full of NBA cards, anime cards, ‘pogs’ and even paper dolls. Do you remember using all your school allowance to buy the popular novelty cards?
According to the avid collector, he collects these things because it reminds him of his childhood. While many of us have probably thrown away these toys as we grew up, Vhin has kept his collection since he was in Grade 6.
Vhin said, “Naaalala ko kasi ‘yung kabataan ko kaya nag-collect ako at bumibili pa rin until now. Para maipakita ko rin sa daughter ko yung mga nalaro ko dati noong ‘di pa uso ang internet.”
He also shared that there are still many other avid 90’s collectors and they have a group named “Pinoy Card Collectors.”
Netizen K. Outis recalled, “Naalala ko pa sabi ng nanay ko sa kin.. Bakit, nalalaga ba yang teks mo? Lol.”
Another netizen also looked back at his collection and said, “Nice! Nangolekta rin ako nyan dati kaso inanod ng baha. Sayang.”
A netizen also commented, “Usong uso iyan dati pati stationaries.” Netizen S. Silva also shared, “Sayang, two boxes na sana yung sakin. Nostalgia talaga!”
Netizen C. Mejia recalled how she used to make money from the popular cards. She shared, “50 pcs sa piso. Dami kong nabebenta kapag nanalo ako.”
