There’s a collector in all of us, I can say that I’m guilty of collecting things since I was a child, and let me share you my coca cola pogs collection that I used to collect during the 90′s which is also my childhood years.
My great grandmother used to have a sari sari store that holds a large market in our area back then, and her helper who is also one of our relative use to collect all the coca cola softdrinks cap with free pogs for me , then after that my second cousin’s father will drive me to the softdrinks truck using his motorcycle so I can trade the “FREE POG” bottle caps for real playable pogs
Pogs are circular cartons with designs on it which are played by the kids during the 90′s , it originated from milk caps game which was later made into colorful cartons for kids to enjoy
I still have lots of unopened coke pogs inside my closet, they’re merely 15 years now (call them vintage lol) And if you’re gonna see them in real life, I can guarantee you that they are still fresh and in mint condition, thanks to the wonderful wooden box of tea that I’ve used to keep them.
We’ve used to play “tsa tsub” or “hagis” back then to gather more pogs from other kids , then we also play the game of pog where you’ll need to bet some pogs with your opponent, then the game of “jack en poy” will declare the player who will have the first turn, then one must flip the pogs using another pog that will act as a slammer,all the flipped pogs will go to the one who flip it.
some also use real pog slammers, and slammers are like these.
I think only two orignally came from coke, its the white one in second row and the black one in the bottom middle, the others two (red) are from ovaltine I think and the remaining slammers are just bought from the store beside our school . . .
Getting to see my vintage cokePOGS again has put some joy in my heart for the memories that these little piece of colorful cartons gave me, from the friends that I’ve gathered to the process and technicalities of collecting them
How about you? do you still have your coca-cola pogs with you?
