My ten favorite pog designs 2

Ten more of the best round cardboard thingies.
June 04, 2012
Hello again! I'm back with ten more pretty pogs. The height of the pog was in 1994, although by the time the pogs dated 1995 hit store shelves, people grew tired of pogs. I don't know why, but they did. I thought it would be a thing that would last forever, like baseball cards. Well, ultimately they didn't. But if stores can bring back Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Strawberry Shortcake, why not pogs? Anyway, here we go with another top ten, like the last one, they're in no particular order.

I thought this was cool.

Another one I recall from my youth.

I do not remember this one from my youth. You see, I am weird and have been collecting pogs even when they were not on sale at your local store.

Swirly goodness.

More swirls.

I've always wondered what was up with these oddly-shaped pogs and why anyone would want one with corners cut off. In case you're interested, the text reads "(C) 1994, LIFESMITH CLASSIC FRACTALS Northridge, CA USA 1-800-4-FRACTALS All rights reserved." I wonder what would happen if you called that number today...

In case you can't read that, the text below the skull and crossbones reads "POISON".

I think whenever I scan some pogs, they lose their prettiness. Must be that shiny coating they put on some.

I'm not sure which side is up on this one.

And we end with another non-pog. This is a GAME MEDALLION that you could get at Taco Bell, Pizza Hut or KFC. This one features everyone's favorite Star Wars character, Jar Jar Binks. On the back, it says "Jar Jar, a valuable if clumsy ally, is a Gungan who has been banished from his home city." Probably because he was so annoying. Anyway, if you were to collect #s 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15, you could win a million dollars. I didn't because this is the only one I have, and I think I remember going to Taco Bell just for the reason to get one of these. By the way, these are a little smaller than a normal pog.
