I promised to reveal more of the Jeff Nelson bubblegum collection earlier in the week, and today I’m going to showcase a portion of the display cases that were already assembled and on display when we arrived.
Starting with case 001 – one of the two Bazooka cases, and one of Jeff’s favorites:

In order to expedite the fun today, I’m going to keep the discussion brief, and show you seven more display cases full of vintage bubble gum. Due to the extent of Jeff’s amazing collection, the next few days are going to be dedicated to covering it. It’s going to be worth the multi-day coverage!

Oh man, I remember those bubble gum tacos. I loved the whole “bubblegum made to look like food” packaging. Stuff like burgers and pizzas. So awesome.
