Watch these hilarious reactions when people eat 30-year-old gum on 'Old Baseball Cards'

Yahoo Sports

One of the best things that happened this season on “Old Baseball Cards,” Yahoo Sports’ nostalgia-driven baseball series, is that we started opening packs with gum. In previous seasons of our show, we were opening cards from after the gum era.

Oh, but this year, we opened lots of old packs of Topps with gum in them — and it was glorious. Some people ate the gum and had hilarious reactions. Some people didn’t even dare try the gum, but still had hilarious reactions.

Consider this our “Best of 30-Year-Old Gum” episode — starring such great guests as Randy Johnson, George Brett, The Miz, Fred Lynn, Ryne Sandberg, Edgar Martinez, Gabe Kapler and Rick Ankiel. Once you’ve watched it, dig into some of their episodes linked below.
