The 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 11

"One of your favorite cards from the 1970s."

Without thinking too hard about it, I'd probably go with Kurt Bevacqua's 1976 Topps #564 Bubble Gum Blowing Champ card - I like it because it's an odd, quirky card from a flagship set.

As far as how the card came to be, The Fleer Sticker Project blog has done research in providing the context behind the card - featuring screen shots and footage from the actual event imbedded from YouTube.

They should still have these bubble gum competitions among MLB players. I'd watch it.
