Bubble Gum Car(d)s

Topps Chewing Gum, Inc started inserting trading cards into bubble gum packs in 1950, cards related to sports like baseball, football and TV characters. My granddaughter likes chewing gum and here, there is a gum called “TURBO” which comes with a wrapper insert of different types of car.

 

My research suggests “Turbo” was originally manufactured in Turkey (late eighties to 2007)  but more recently in Poland (from 2015). The quality of the insert is not great and sometimes they have been miss cut, so the car name and picture do not correspond… but I like collecting car related stuff. (I have an entire blog devoted to my collection and collecting of diecast model cars… My diecast blog (click here) )

This has been cut wrong, the picture is of a Volvo not a Lamborghini

Ana has one piece of gum on the way to school each day, if the car is something like a Jaguar or a Lotus, I get a little excited. Ana just enjoys the gum.
