Full Answer

Pogs became highly collectible when the game's popularity led to the release of a wide variety of designs. Images ranged from popular TV and movie characters, to sports and politicians. Although most pogs were produced in market-saturating quantities and are generally considered worthless, according to Complex Media, rarer pogs may have some value.

Modern pog games are based on a game that dates as far back as 17th-century Japan. A Hawaiian version gained popularity during the 1920s.
