When did baseball card companies stop putting gum in the packs?
This is a great question. Starting as the Topps gum company in 1938, the Brooklyn, NY based, Topps Gum was eventually replaced by Bazooka Bubble Gum in 1947 and is now one of America's most recognized products. Topps added trading cards in 1950 to try and enhance gum sales. That year, Hopalong Cassidy and Frank Buck "Bring 'em Back Alive" cards were issued. The following year the first baseball cards were published (Red Backs, and Blue Backs game cards.) In 1952 the First set was issued with the famed Mickey Mantle Rookie Card, and a Stick of Gum! Topps received numerous complaints from collectors that the gum was either staining the cards, or creating an impression in them, sacrificing their "mint" condition. The gum was eliminated in 1991. There was nothing like the pleasure of opening up a fresh pack of baseball cards, and smelling that sweet aroma of that stick of gum included with the cards. Sticking that brittle piece of gum in your mouth, and cracking the gum into smaller hard grainy pieces until the Gum became soft and chewy. It was heaven. They should have never removed the Gum. It was an experience worth sacrificing a baseball card to a stain. I don't know why collectors get upset over the gum stain anyway. To me it's like a letter of Authenticity. How many fake baseball cards have you seen with a gum stain? It was part of the baseball card experience. I think Gum Stains are great! -Steven KeyMan Check out "Gum Stain" - in my new Baseball Collectibles Glossary. The Gum is Back! - I'm not sure if this is the first year but the 2008 Topps Opening Day baseball cards come with Gum in every pack.

Cello Pack Cello Pack - A form of card packaging. These packs usually contain more baseball cards than the standard wax packs. These packs are wrapped in a transparent packaging, much like cellophane. Cello packs that have a star visible, especially on the front, are collectable and carry a premium over that of the price of the single card.
