I got a few of these with the little pink Game Gear case too. It still smells like bubble gum inside. Pictures later tonight of the ones I have.

I admit I've wanted to see the whole collection compiled and scanned online, even if the tips aren't the best and the artwork is uninspired.

The card in the very middle gained my attention; a sideways spikewall! And since these cards were produced after the game was released, so there's no excuse.


Sonic seems to be facing death with dignity, since that chain should be pulling up.

That's very old news... I believe these are the same cards with the Splats artwork.

The real question here is..

Do you still have the bubble gum?

You know you want to take a bite ;)

...on second thought, no, you don't. Though to be fair, it still smells like bubblegum. Doesn't feel that way, but it certainly smells. I accidentally tasted some powdered remains taking that, as well...

Ultimately, that's what I was hoping to accomplish out of this. It always seemed to me that the wiki attempted to document everything Sonic and I figured having a full collection of scanned cards online would bring us one step closer to that impossible goal.

I've found about six or seven cards now, all s&k, sonic 3, or sonic chaos. I had forgotten about the sonic spinball cards for the game gear. I'm fairly certain that the sonic 2 gg, sonic spinball, and triple trouble (I think I remember that being in there) cards I had have long since been lost or thrown out. I'd love to see what all the cards had to say, though. =) It makes me happy that there are others here that still have some of these cards :D

No excuse for what, exactly?

It's probably relevant to note that these cards are in a separate collection from these cards (which I have all except for one Posted Image). These ones did not come with gum:

Haha that middle card there. He just doesn't give a flying fuck about those spikes.

But yeah, I remember these! I got my Dad to buy me one pack because of the Game Gear casing. (I really, really wanted one at the time. Got a Nomad instead for Christmas. The irony here is that I hated it and still wanted a GG. How young and stupid I was! :specialed:.) The gum tasted like ass, if I recall correctly. Probably threw away/lost the casing and cards within days, however. I'd upload mine if I still had them. :(
