Bubbles 1sts

Bubble Blowing cards had some unique firsts.   There is the first parallel bubble.

Unless you count the 1975 Mini of Bert Blyleven.

1992 Leaf

3 or more parallels.  Base, Mini and Micro.
1993 Topps

More than one player on a card with a bubble.

2005 eTopps

Future Hof'er Todd Helton?

1993  Bart and Bo

One of many oddball bubbles.

There are over 40 HOF'ers on Bubble Blowing cards.  Some during their

But it keeps me going.
