During the Sophomore Year campaign, the Freshman Gilded Edition was made available as an add-on. Limited to 144, each deck has a hole punched in the side to see the gilding, signed and numbered.
It’s the early to mid 80s. I am making my way through Elementary School in Northern California. I have my Masters of the Universe metal lunch pail, Nintendo Power in my backpack and British Knights on my feet.
As we sit down in class and open up our cartoon themed backpacks, pull out some folders that have our homework (that I most likely didn’t do) secured inside. This was not just any folder. It was peach colored, had various sports figures on the cover and had a vintage feel to it. The inside was full of so much information, but most of us really only remember the multiplication table on the right side. And believe me, it is not as big as you think it was.
The Pee-Chee Folder.
A staple among students growing up in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Most of us had them and they are one of the most recognisable items from our past. And that is the inspiration behind this deck. The In Session Playing Cards: Freshman Year.
