At World of Snacks we are literally searching the planet for the best snacks available. We are currently in the process of reviewing snacks from each country as we select items that we intend to offer for sale on our web based international snacks store that is set to launch later this year. In our search for unique and delicious treats we’ve discovered the rare and collectable snack market. These snacks are highly sought after for more than just their delicious flavor, in fact a majority of collectable snacks are not edible. These rare candy bars and snacks include sports memorabilia, celebrities, movie props, and treats commemorating events.
Our first rare candy bar that we’ve acquired is collectable on many levels. Unlike our typical snack review we will not be sampling these treats but instead sharing information about the items and later offering them for sale in our store. So let’s take a look at our 1989 Ken Griffey Jr Autographed Rookie Candy Bar produced by Pacific Trading Cards.
Ken Griffey Jr was an all-star professional baseball player whose career stretched 22 years. Not only was Griffey one of the most prolific home run hitters of all time, he also had many lucrative endorsements making him a celebrity in the United States and throughout the world. His endorsements included Nike and Nintendo making him a household name to everyone, whether they followed baseball or not.
During Ken Griffey’s rookie year with the Seattle Mariners Pacific Trading Cards released a candy bar to be sold in the stadium. From what we can determine it was produced in two colors, one yellow and one blue. The only place to purchase either of these Ken Griffey Jr candy bars was at the stadium making its production numbers relatively low. Our version of the blue candy bar is even rarer because it’s personally signed by Ken Griffey Jr during his rookie season. His signed rookie cards command top dollar and owning an autographed rookie candy bar would allow a collector to own something more unique for a fraction of the price.
World of Snacks will offer the 1989 Ken Griffey Jr Autographed Rookie Candy Bar produced by Pacific Trading Cards up for sale and several other highly sought after and rare candy bars later this year when we officially open our international snack store. If you have any suggestions on items we should carry feel free to reach out to us at any time!
