Growing up in the 70’s & 80’s, it was hard to escape trading cards. I never got into the sports ones, but I did collect the Six Million Dollar Man, S.W.A.T., Incredible Hulk and many others that were a part of pop culture at the time. Flash forward to the 80’s, and the UK magazine PUNK LIVES had the had the brilliant idea to create trading cards with our favorite punk bands. I wish I would have collected these, but this magazine was important at the time, which made it too expensive for me. I spent my daily allowance on video games – Dig Dug to be exact! Now step back in time with me and peep these iconic bands posing for their trading card…Make sure to collect them all!
