Happy 237th Birthday USA!
To honor this special occasion, I woke up this morning and busted a box of 1992 Starline Americana. "What's Americana?", you ask.
According to Merriam-Webster, Americana are materials concerning or characteristic of America, its civilization, or its culture. And that's exactly what Starline built their checklist around.
This 250 card set contains famous American politicians, heroes, athletes, military leaders, inventors, writers, and other key figures who have left their mark on U.S. history.
The box contained 36 packs and each pack had 12 cards. Each wrapper contained an advertisement for a special edition collector's album with an Americana logo and fifteen 9-pocket pages.
If you're a history buff, you'll enjoy this set. Although the photography isn't the greatest, the information you'll find on the card backs make up for it. Each card contains basic biographical information, historical highlights, and a trivia question.
Unfortunately, the collation was terrible. At 432 cards per box, I should have been able to walk away with a complete set. But, I came up four cards short. Thankfully, these boxes are pretty cheap, so I'm planning to buy another one and cross my fingers.
Happy 4th of July! Enjoy a safe, holiday weekend. Sayonara!
Wilson... is this crazy enough for you?
