1967 Topps
Bob Gibson

Remember when you would open up a wax pack and there would either be a piece of gum stuck to a card or gum residue caked on the card's surface?

Well, there must have been a case of gum next to this card. It's a mess!

If I didn't know any better, I would wonder if it were mold growing on the card. But since I've had the card a while now and it hasn't grown any fuzz, I think it's old gum residue.

Come to think of it – it could be orange juice. Maybe it's the dripping of an ice cream or the remnants of a Snickers bar.

Any thoughts?

Remember in August 1967, when you and I "borrowed" Joey Gandolfo's bicycle? And we cut across Miller's Stream to make our getaway? Only, you slipped on the rocks and fell in? You had this card in your back pocket that day! And your mother didn't find it until she did the laundry a week later.


(or maybe that was someone else....)
