Maybe it is either my age or my social circle- but I have no clue as to what a POG container is. Can anyone help? thanks Rolling Eyes

If you are too old to know about Pogs, perhaps you are old enough to remember milk bottles with the round cardboard caps. Pogs were cardboard discs about the size if those caps that were all the rage for school kids to trade and play games with a few years ago. "Pog tubes" are tubes used to store stacks of these things.

They are usually black (at least all of kb's I've ever seen) and are slightly larger than a normal film canister.

(yes I know that there are some here that will claim not to know how big a film canister is too) Smile

Yes, I do remember the cardboard milkcaps in glass bottle delivered to our home when I was a kid in the 50's-

and now that I think about it I remember those Pogs kids played with, but didn't remember what they were called.- in fact, if I go back to my teaching days- I think those were outlawed in our school- but I can't remember why- maybe because they were a classroom disturbance.
