Battlestar Galactica Smells Like Fresh Bread

To this day, walking down the bread aisle in the supermarket makes me happy. Back then we ate Weber’s, but my mom switched to Wonder so I could get my hands on these sweet BSG cards. It was 1978, and I was space crazy. Star Wars had come out the year before (I was 5) and changed my world. I missed The Star Wars/Wonder Bread promotion (somehow), but I did collect the Topps Star Wars (and Empire Strikes Back) cards.

A few months ago, as I was very nervously waiting for my wife to deliver our first child (a beautiful girl, 15 weeks tomorrow), I bought some cards on eBay, including a full box of unopened The Black Hole packs. (Sorry, but I love that movie.) The gum inside was pretty gross, naturally, but it smelled just fine, and it was a hell of a lot of fun opening those packs and putting together a complete set.
