    This is my father back in 1949/50 I believe. He played basketball for Verona, Missouri, and made so many points for a record year. Bazooka printed it on the inside of their bubble gum wrapper. It is also listed in a magazine called All Sport during the same year. He ended up playing in the Cage Classic or North South basketball tournament. My father died back in 1996 but my sister and I both have one of these wrappers - mine is laminated and hers is wrapped in loose wax paper.

    I've never seen another one or heard of another one. Has anyone else ever seen one?? I will always cherish it!!
