Subject: I finally got a Trapper Keeper!

Written By: JamieMcBain on 11/01/09 at 10:13 pm

Last week, I finally brought the one thing that had elluded me, since the 80's, my very own Trapper Kepper.

It was bright orange, and cost me five dollars, to buy it.

The inner 80's geek, in me was very happy!  ;D

So, does anyone else here, own a Trapper Keeper, as well?  ???

  Is it one of the newer ones?  Vintage Trappers, in good condition, can go for alot of dough...

  I don't have mine anymore...

Oh...I would have guessed it was like a 'bug catcher' .... where you trap the bug and then keep it in an observation chamber.

My daughter nearly had a melt-down in Staples (office/stationery supply store) because they didn't have the colour of trapper keeper she wanted.  Luckily I found some elsewhere in the store.

In the eighties I believe they often had pictures of popular characters like Ghostbusters, A-Team, etc.

I still have the one I used in junior high and the one my mother once used in the early 80s.  They're both stored away somewhere.

I think I had a Trapper Keeper in '89. It was in pastels: purple with pink shells all over it.

I had one in '87, a pretty green/forrest-y one with a white waterfall picture on it.  I adored it because it stored practically my whole life (which admittedly was alot like my life now (billions of pieces of random paper))

I doubt I still have mine, my mom gave everything I owned (prior to marriage) away.  That'll teach me to leave stuff there.  ;D

Yeah, I had one.  The guys used to razz me about it, but then again, they used to razz me about everything.  Then I discovered weird music and orange Mohawks.

:D
