A&BC Chewing Gum - Picture Card Album
Picture Card Album
A&BC Chewing Gum
I must have been around 9 or 10 when a sweets van used to come around our street and they sold packets of gum with cards inside - Footballers, Cricketers, Flags of the World, etc. I used to collect most of the different sets. I was amazed to kind this almost mint condition album on eBay and recognised it as the same album I used to collect my cards in. The album is generic and I needed to write the name of the collection on the front and list all the cards in the back of the album (probably where I got my obsession with checklists from). I've got to say, cutting the slots was a real pain, there were no Stanley knives (box cutters) around then or if there were we never had one. I had to force a scissors point through the rough paper before cutting along the dotted lines.
