Send the gum to PSA and see if they will authenticate it!!!

I got you beat.. In 2011 when they did that whole anniversity jive on the website with the rings, I won a 1987 wax pack. When I got it, guess what i did? You betcha! I took that stick of gum and as i raised it to the heavens above, put it into my mouth. Let me ask you this.. Ever eat a stick of chalk before? Thats exactly what it was like... It exploded into a billion little specs of dust and bamf.. I laughted my ***** off it was so horrid. And thats a true story. Smile EAT IT EAT IT EAT IT. YOU CAN DO ETTTTTTTT

I am so glad to know that I am not the only one that has done this. I did chew the gum back in 1987 and I knew it sucked even back then. No clue what made me think that almost 20 years of aging in a warehouse filled with who knows what was going to improve it any...

Wife and I did a youtube video in 2009 eating a gum out of 1984 Topps football. We both thought it was gross.

Even when they were new packs, the gum wasn't too good. It was sweet for a minute or two and then it was time to spit it out.
If you TRY to chew it now, expect to see a similarity with chewing glass. You'll be slightly safer though b/c you won't lose as much blood as you would if you tried to eat a beer bottle. Wink

Last weekend my buddy tried the gum out of a 2009 pack of something baseball (out of a retail value box). He literally sliced his tongue open! That stuff goes bad fast.

I guess I was wrong about the blood loss thing, huh!?

Hard to believe that the baseball cards were originally included as an incentive to get you to buy the gum. When I started collecting in 1970, I'd buy boxes of cards at 5 cents a pack and all the gum went right into my mouth. I'd have a ping-pong ball sized glob of it that I would attach to my bedpost each night and the next morning, right back into my mouth. It would take a good couple of minutes for it to soften up again. I got real good at blowing bubbles. That was 43 years ago and amazingly, I still have all my teeth. Memories.
I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
