Thanks, joeb1.  I created a new "Trading stamps" item, moved Green Stamps there, and added Plaid Stamps using the image you provided.  According to Wikipedia, there were several other popular brands, but I don't recall encountering them.

LOL I guess you've run through all the trivia questions we've got so far. Check back in a few days, as we're adding new questions as fast as we can think 'em up and do the necessary research. You could also clear your trivia history and revisit the questions you've already seen; some of the users on the leader board appear to have done that.

What happened to all the trivia games???? There's nothing to do on this sight anymore.
