Eighties Alphabetically - FBI Foods

 When I first saw the listing for an FBI set, I assumed with was put out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Several police departments have put out sets over the years, so why not the FBI too.

Instead, in 1981 and 1982, it was FBI Foods of Canada that partnered with MSA to put out disc sets.  The discs came two to a panel on the bottom of a Bantam drink box.  

Since the discs were on the bottom of the box, they are not easy to find in good condition.  I was able to buy a complete intact box to get the lone Cub in the 1982 set.

I didn't cut up the bottom into individual discs but left it whole.  I think that will help keep up the value of the panel.

There is one Cub in the 1981 set, Dave Kingman.  I have never seen a listing anywhere for his disc.  The picture is borrowed from the TCDB and the disc is on my most wanted list.


  1. It's always to see something that I've never even heard of on the blogs.

  2. Cool, I used to drink those. Always had this weird foily aftertaste from the foil seal on top, no matter the flavour of the drink
