Found these in an antique shop! I’m sure the gum is super stale by now.
Man, I miss trading cards with gum.
I bought a pack of Batman (Burton) cards at a used music/movie store a year or two ago. After opening them, I tried the gum. It disintegrated in seconds.
I imagine the gum in these would as well, but it’s worth a try. Afterall, how often does one get the opportunity to consume 41 year old gum? Strike while the iron is hot!
Oh wow I can imagine how that tasted!
It was akin to what I imagine chalk with a microscopic inkling of bubble gum flavoring would taste like.
The gum disintegrated faster than a selfless thought in Lex Luthors bald head.
Nice! Those are awesome.
I Don’t Collect Trading Cards, I Collect Comic Books
I tend to just collect whatever DC themed stuff I find. Usually, I really only collect Batman-themed stuff, but I thought these were pretty cool to find in an antique shop.
Very cool! Wonder what year films started putting out trading cards? I remember having them for star wars empire strikes back in 1980. But i cant recall any other films prior till now as i look at your superman cards. Again, very cool
@travis.79854 good question. The earliest movie cards I have seen are Star Wars from 1977. I’ve heard there were cards printed for the James Bond move Goldfinger in 1965.
I remember King Kong and Star Trek cards from the movies.
The 70’s had a lot more TV show cards like Kojack, Happy Days, Planet Of The Apes, Welcome Back Kotter, Incredible Hulk, and Mork And Mindy.
They also had some Close Encounters of the Third Kind trading cards at that store, and that came out in 1977 I believe.
Lol, same here
