    Did anyone get the Dallas trading cards/bubblegum cards back in the day? I was looking through some old things today and found 5 from back then. I know there are more somewhere.

    I believe they were only from the early seasons. I’m fairly certain they didn’t follow the entire show.

    I did! I remember buying them from a local convenient store or 7-11 in the spring or summer of 1981. I believe they only had one set of 55 cards and they covered just the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons. They even had a few cards featuring our favorite vixen Kristin.

    Dallas began when I just became a teenager. One regret I have in life is not seeking out Dallas memorabilia. That said I don't recall anything being available in Australia. Many years later at a flea market I picked up Dallas, The Complete Ewing Family Saga by Laura Van Wormer. It's still in my possession.

    Looks like you can buy the whole set on eBay if you're interested :)

    Ive got the pack

    Ive collected everything and about everyone on Dallas since jan 12th 1980 and still do to this day altho there is precious little written about it now and its mainly Priscilla P

    It really died a death when Larry died as UK loved Larry and he featured in papers a lot post Dallas

    With hind sight if i thought in 1980 that Id still be collecting 39 years later i might not have started and storeage is a big problem

    Not to mention the HUGE expense over the years, and my parents said on more than one occasion if i didnt buy it I could be as rich as the ewings

    A ouple of Dallas fans from the forum - no longer post - came to my house to view it and said i should open a museum!!

    My treasured items are 3 barbara scrap books which i bought from her grandaughter

    and as Dallas progressed - stuff on Victoria P began to out number the rest of the cast - she was HOT in the mid 80s in UK

    Now I think I have far too much stuff and what will happen to it when im RIP and pushing up the daisies! My dad always says it would be a great bonfire!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's both funny and sad on what we consider valuable to us personally has no value to others. My personal interest is family history and I've spent many years and money obtaining information pertaining to my (father's) side of the family. No one else in my immediate family or relations have any interest in it. I've spoken with a local family history society and they have already agreed to accept all the documentation in the event anything happens to me. This has been added as a codicil to my Will. How very Jock Ewing of me.

    Barbara I've seen many times where you say you obtained scrapbooks from Barbara's grand daughter. Would the Southfork Ranch Museum have any interest in these? Depends on how personal they are and if Barbara's descendants would object to the idea.

    Loved those cards! I was able to buy them at a local candy store and collected all of the packs.

    That sounds like one impressive Dallas collection you have, Barbara Fan!

    I'm wondering, do have any of the clothes that the Dallas actors wore on the show such as maybe a cowboy hat Jock or JR wore, or maybe a dress Pam wore? if so, could you tell us a little about some of them? I bet a lot of people here would be very interested!

    I was kitted out in "western gear" ie jeans, shirt, cowboy boots - that gave me blisters and still had them 6 weeks later, - bandana and I was given the same Stetson that Steve Kanaly wore during s6 original - still got them all in a drawer. Never wore the boots again tho as they hurt!!

    id have been delighted if i got Pams cast offs, but sadly not lol
