Return to the Oddball Archive Index


Year: 1988

Title: Jiffy Pop Discs

Size: 2-1/2″ in diameter

Number in Set: 20


Jiffy Pop Popcorn issued their third set of 20 discs, highlighting popular players, in partnership with MSA and the MLBPA. Each package of popcorn had a single disc.

The discs have a semigloss finish and show full-color closeup photographs of the players (with team logos airbrushed off the player’s baseball caps). The borders are light blue and have a curved label along the side with the words “3rd Annual Collector’s Edition.” The fronts also have the Jiffy Pop brand printed along the top, the MLBPA logo, and the players’ name, position, and team.

Jiffy Pop numbered the cards by the player’s last name. A bit of statistical information is presented on the back as well.

An uncut sheet with all 20 discs was available via mail-in redemption, and they sell for under $5 these days.
