Rare: Japanese Coca-Cola/Ghostbusters playing cards
After all these years, it’s not often I see a GB collectible I haven’t seen before – this one blew me away. Few GB collectibles attract that kind of bidding, resulting in that kind of price.
The cards are fairly unremarkable, featuring stylized (just not GB stylized) face cards, a standard marketing image of Mr. Stay-Puft as the Jokers, and the GB Logo on black as the backs of the cards. Handsome, but not terribly inspired.
Still, I shouldn’t be surprised – some of the most sought after GB collectibles are the ones that interest more than just Ghostheads. In this case, it’s a two-fer, as there are a lot of collectors of Coca-Cola memorabilia and of playing cards.
