2013 Bench Warmer Bubble Gum

This pack of 2013 Bench Warmer Bubble Gum cards are another of the non-sport packs I purchased from eBay seller Bob Rewak.  Bench Warmer cards are of course known for highlighting lovely ladies and this set doesn't disappoint.  I purchased this some time ago and unwittingly pulled a future hall of famer in Torrie Wilson (below center) who is a member of the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame class.  Congratulation Torrie!
Each card front has a young lady with a sporty aspect that was anything from boxing gloves to a bowling ball.  I like the dual photos on front with a full color offering and a black and white head shot in the background.  I pulled one rookie in my pack.

The cards are a bit "bright" to me but overall I really have nothing to complain about.  No idea what I'll do with these cards but I still find it fun busting these packs.  Probably for the obvious reasons.  There are autos and relics to be found in these packs.  Boxes run for around $30 while sets can be found for under $20. You'll probably know a few names on the checklist to include Carmen Electra but I didn't know the vast majority of the gals.
The backs of the cards appropriately showcase the backs of the lovely ladies.  I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of information on the backs but had to smile when I notice they omitted the year from the birthday. For some reason the fact Torrie Wilson was in wrestling was omitted from her write-up.  Maybe a trademark thing or something.
No good reason for showing the back of this card other than I just really liked the back of this card.  I'm bad I know.
