What baseball cards were to my dad and uncles, TMNT collectible cards were to me. They even came with a stick of gum, just like baseball cards of yore. I called my mom last week to ask her if she still had my old collection of TMNT trading cards in a box somewhere, but she had no clue what I was talking about. My suspicion is that they were thrown out years ago. No matter, I found a website where you can still buy them. Plus, there's always ebay.
|Oh yes. There is always ebay.|
|Like this, but with elves.|
The Germans understand.
The memory of my TMNT trading cards still hadn't fully formed in my brain until I actually picked up the sealed wax paper package from Max's table. The feel of the wax paper, that smell of cardboard and stale bubblegum finally triggered something in my brain. At last, the elves leapt from the dusty old brain shelves and cried "I remember these!" Our friend Adam even decided he had to try half a stick of decade-old gum. It pretty much just dissolved into nothingness in his mouth. We were all thoroughly grossed out by it.
So, thank you, Max. Thanks for that nice little trip down Memory Lane.
Anyone up for trading some cards?
