Wax Pack Flashback – ALF (1987)


In this episode of Wax Pack Flashback, watch Jason fill in for Mickey and open TWO packs of ALF trading cards from 1987. Also, Jason opens a pack of RD’s Retro Detention cards courtesy of the Retro-Daze YouTube channel!

According to TCDb, there are 47 cards and 18 stickers in the ALF trading cards set which featured episode scenes and promotional pictures. The ALF set also featured 22 Bouillabaseball cards which displayed players from the Melmacian version of baseball. The set was made in the USA by Topps and in Canada by O-Pee-Chee. A second series was also produced in 1988.
