THE 90s CALLED, THEY WANT THEIR ONE EXTREMELY VALUABLE POG BACK.


What’s a pog you ask? It was an extremely shortlived kid craze in the 90s that basically involved collecting circular bottle type caps with graphics on ‘em. The first pogs came from Passionfruit Orange and Guava juice bottles. Hence the name.  Sadly the POG value hasn’t stood the test of time. Most sell for a scant .99¢ on ebay. That is of course except for one. HINT: It features a prominent icon of the 90s (NO, it’s not the pink Power Ranger). It’s a gold POG of MR. OJ SIMPSON!
Starting bid is $19, or you can buy this 90s ebay gem right now for $39.99.
SO I GUESS O.J. IS GUILTY...for making me want this collectible soooo bad!!!
