Here Is A Chance To Own Some Lunchbox History.

These boxes were part of Larry Aikins (King Of Lunchboxes) Collection. Larry wrote most of the Price Guides used today in the lunchbox collecting hobby. He was the major player/collector in the 80s - 90s. Larry was the go to person for the hobby for 20+ years. I purchased the remaining inventory and collection about 4 years ago. As I dig deeper into storage I will be listing a LOT OF GOODIES between now and Christmas.

You can see from the shipping label these were shipped to P & L Collectibles (Pat & Larry Aikens) Canton,Texas

P.O.D. (Payable On Death)

Is an American rock band formed in 1992. The band's line-up consists of vocalist Sonny Sandoval , drummer Wuv Bernardo , guitarist Marcos Curiel , and bassist Traa Daniels . They have released seven studio albums and have sold over ten million records worldwide. Over the course of their career, the band have also received three Grammy Award nominations, contributed to numerous motion picture soundtracks and toured internationally.

With their third studio album, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown , they achieved their initial mainstream success; the album was certified Platinum by the RIAA in 2000. Their following studio album, Satellite , continued the band's success with the hit singles, " Alive " and " Youth of the Nation ", pushing it to go triple platinum .

In 1991, friends Marcos Curiel and Wuv Bernardo engaged in jam sessions , with Marcos covering guitar and vocals and Wuv playing the drums. Calling themselves Eschatos, they started playing at keg parties doing Metallica and Slayer cover songs. After his mother's fatal illness, Sonny Sandoval converted to Christianity and was asked by his cousin, Wuv Bernardo, to join the band as a way to keep his mind straight as mentioned on their DVD , Still Payin' Dues . They got a bass player , Gabe Portillo, and eventually changed their name to P.O.D.. After recording a demo tape, Traa Daniels joined the band in 1994 when they needed a bassist for some shows to replace Gabe. P.O.D. signed with Rescue Records , a label created by Wuv's father. Between 1994 and 1997, they released three albums under the label, Snuff the Punk , Brown and Payable on Death Live.

Shortly after the release of Payable on Death Live , Essential Records offered P.O.D. a $100,000 recording contract, but Sonny Sandoval spoke for them all when he politely but firmly told band manager Tim Cook to decline the offer because, “God has a bigger plan for P.O.D.” In 1998, A&R rep John Rubeli from Atlantic Records caught a show at The Roxy on the Sunset Strip , and the band was quickly signed to a major-label deal. P.O.D. soon released The Warriors EP , a tribute EP to their loyal fans as a transitional album from Rescue Records to Atlantic Records.

Mainstream success (1999–2002)

P.O.D.'s third studio album, 1999's The Fundamental Elements of Southtown , spawned the hits " Southtown " and Total Request Live favorite " Rock the Party (Off the Hook) ", which became their first video to reach #1. At a time after the 1999 album, " School of Hard Knocks " was featured on the soundtrack for Little Nicky while both " Southtown " and " Rock the Party (Off the Hook) " appeared in the movie. All three music videos endured heavy play on MTV2 and the songs were rock radio hits. The album went on to become RIAA certified platinum.

On the 11th September 2001 P.O.D. released their fourth studio album, Satellite . The album's first single, " Alive ," went on to become one of MTV 's and MTV2 's top played videos of the year. The video's popularity, as well as the song's positive message, helped the song become a huge modern rock radio hit and it was Grammy nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2002.
