Bubblegum Cards

Sometime around 1990, Winterland Productions began manufacturing "Super Stars MusiCards" - rock 'n' roll bubblegum cards for rock enthusiasts - packaged with, of course, a sheet of bubblegum. The cards have a picture on the front and information about the artist or band on the back.

The text: After studying at Kent State University, Ohio-born singer/songwriter Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders in London in 1978 with three musicians from Hereford, England. Their self-titled debut album contained the hit single "Brass In Pocket" (#5, 1980). Another hit "Back On The Chain Gang" (#5, 1983) was used in the movie "King Of Comedy." The single "Don't Get Me Wrong" (#10, 1986) was gleaned from their fourth album Get Close.
