*Daniel's suggestion and Strong Bad's "pink piece of balsa wood" remark refer to the fact that most baseball cards up until the 1990s came with a stick of [[gum]] inside. This is due to the fact that most baseball cards were made by chewing gum companies. The gum was often hard to the point of being unchewable. It also periodically ruined the card it was resting against in the package. Newer card series have chewing gum also, but now it comes in a plastic wrapper, and is fresh, and soft.
