“ Tiny card. Not bad for a food insert ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I like it! ” -parsley24

“ A fun bit of childhood nostalgia for me. I have 8 of the 21 team sets and they are all in very "played with" condition. ” -bevans

“ Nice Hockey card. I recall some months back (eek maybe even more than a year ago) someone posting (sorry for the pun) about this set. I think they had just finished building their homie team set and were thinking about going fof the full set. To be honest at first look at the front I thought it was a small stamp-sized sticker. ” -captkirk42

“ These are kind of neat , kind of plain. ” -uncaian

“ Today's scan was by 'francoisangers'. ” -Kirbythedodger

“ At least they tried. ” -muskie027

I kinda remember these from when I was a kid. Did the different colours and numbers mirror some sort of UNO game?

Wow, 336 cards in the set? That's a lot of cereal boxes!

Simple design. Photos are well framed. Nice card backs.

I have some of these and never knew what they were. Now I do.  Some are still attached together in pairs so they must have been issued with several per box of cereal. The ones I have are of the Canadians and Islanders. I don't collect hockey so they are now in my trade box.

As of the end of 2018: 16,040 cards traded out, 13,401 cards received, and 256 trades complete.

“I divide my officers into four classes as follows: The clever, the industrious, the lazy, and the stupid. Each officer always possesses two of these qualities.

Those who are clever and industrious I appoint to the General Staff. Use can under certain circumstances be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy qualifies for the highest leadership posts. He has the requisite nerves and the mental clarity for difficult decisions. But whoever is stupid and industrious must be got rid of, for he is too dangerous.”

I think these are matched to team colors. UNO game cards are a different beast all togther.

They came in 16-card panels. Each panel is a complete game deck and one team.  I see we don't have the complete panels listed in the database.

Someday my cards may double in value and then be worth half of what I paid for them.

More like Old Maid.  Complete the color sets and lay them down. The goalies are the Old Maid, but if you end up with the goalie you win.

16 cards per box.  So if you were super lucky it would take only 21 boxes of cereal. Did I mention you'd have to be super lucky.
