Fun Cards: 1976 Topps Brandon Phillips “Bubble Gum Blowing Champion”

It’s Saturday. Growing up, Saturday was the greatest day in the world, because we had tons of great cartoons (does anyone else remember Turbo Teen? Anyone???), no school, and lots of baseball to play. And of course, when you play baseball in the backyard, you gotta have a big ol’ hunk of Big League Chew in your cheek. Who could blow the biggest bubble?

One guy who seems to have a whole year of Saturdays is Brandon Phillips. The guy just loves to play baseball and he lives each day to the max like he doesn’t have a care in the world. I’m glad he’s still a part of the Cincinnati Reds organization.

Bubble Gum Blowing Champion

This is, of course, based on the Kurt Bevacqua card from the 1976 Topps set. What a great card. And there is even video of the championship between Bevacqua and Johnny Oates!
