Pac-Man 1980s Scratch-off Game Trading Cards



This morning it occurred to me as to why I love scratch-offs or scratcher lottery ticket games so much.... PAC-MAN! As a kid, I was obsessed with collecting these Pac-Man Stickers & Rub-off bubble gum trading style cards from Fleer. The object of the game was to scratch off each dot which would translate into points I believe.


Each pack included three cards, three collectible stickers and the usual hard-as-a-rock stick of pink chewing gum. No matter that the stick of gum was always covered in a white floury substance. I loved it just the same.
Ironically, the New Jersey Lottery put out a Pac-Man Lottery scratch-offs  back in 2005. I loved them, yet never won a dime.  

Anyone remember these Pac-man Rub-off game cards? As always I'm dating myself.

Oh, I love anything Pac Man or 1980's arcade for that matter! There was tons of Pac Man merch out there. I have never seen these though. It seems like a good way to get kids hooked on lotto scratchers!

I just adore your blog. :) I used to love playing pac man as a kid, but I don't remember these cards. I must have been to young. I was born in 1983. Haha.

While I had all things PacMan, I don't think I ever had these.
