20-year-old baseball card gum
I have very fond memories of baseball card gum.
So when I saw a pack of 1989 Topps cards in a vending machine at the Rogers Centre, I could not resist. I was looking forward to eating the gum, which always dissolved in your mouth in like 10 seconds, and smelling that first card that rest against the stick for two decades.
It was horrible. The gum have taken on the cardboard flavor of the cards, not vice versa. And the card didn't smell like gum - double disappointment.
Oh well. Lesson learned.
My cards were: Yankees leaders, Frank White (Royals), Pete Rose (Reds - mgr.), Dale Sveum (Brewers), Chad Kreuter (Rangers), Marty Barrett (Red Sox), Kurt Stillwell (Royals), Paul Assenmacher (Braves), John Farrell (Indians), Tom Filer (Brewers), Joe Price (Giants), Jeff Bittiger (White Sox), Don Heinkel (Tigers), Rob Murphy (Reds) and John Wathan (Royals - mgr.)
