My last post featured a card about the great Pine Tar Incident on July 24, 1983. At the time I pined for more cards that featured the memorable stories and great characters of the game.
Here's my favorite find at last weekend's card show:
1976 Topps, #564 -- Bubble Cum Blowing Championships card of Kurt Bevacqua
I did a quick Google search and found that this card has been dissected by the baseball card blogosphere more than a few times. The Fleer Sticker Project did a real nice job breaking down the background story of the card.
What's stopping Topps from bringing this back? Sometimes I think I grew up in the wrong era of sports.
I'll leave you with a youtube video of the actual bubblegum blowing championship! Enjoy!
