Bazooka Joe Trading Cards and Puzzles 1972

In 1972, Topps began a series of standard size trading cards that came with large chunks of bubble gum along with a redeemable wrapper. Included with each chunk was two trading cards. The cards were not numbered but the backs formed four different puzzles and came in two variations, one with grey cardstock and one with white cardstock (see examples above). There were 66 different cards. Puzzle 1 took 15 cards, puzzle 2 took 18 cards, puzzle 3 took 15 cards and puzzle 4 took the remaining 18 cards. These cardboard cards would run in several variations through 1979.
