1985 Topps The Goonies
In order to capitalize on the success of Cyndi Lauper in the 80's, Warner Bros created "The Goonies." And, in order to help push sales of the (HOF!) Topps Cyndi Lauper cards, Topps created trading cards based on the movie. It's a match made in... well, you know...
I kinda remember seeing this movie on HBO or something. Back in the day, I was a huge Cory Feldman fan. That had more to do with his Michael Jackson routine in "Dream a Little Dream" more than anything else, really. Yes, I am a Wacko Jacko fan. Well, no that isn't right. I love his music and dancing, the rest can be kept in the closet. I digress...
The only real memory I have of the movie is the big ugly guy - Sloth. And he reminds me of the twins in "Nothing But Trouble." Now, THERE'S a movie that needed a card set. Heck maybe there is one for all I know. Again, I digress.
I'm pretty sure I've seen the chubby kid in other things, but specifics escape me. Yes, a quick search on imdb would yield wondrous results, I'm sure. By now, you realize that is not my thing. If it's your thing, have at it.
You recognize this kid right? Not from this movie, but rather from a movie starring a ruffian-with-a-heart-of-gold space smuggler... Oh wait, that's not right... Han Solo had to wield a leather whip for the movie with this kid in it. Are you with me? Did you already know? Yeah, Indiana Jones... For those who weren't sure until I just said that, thank you. It took me that long too, so don't feel too bad.
I don't know enough about the movie to even comment here...
Each pack has 10 cards and a sticker. That octopus-looking thing is the sticker that came in my pack. Yay me.
