Anyone want some 19-year-old bubble gum?

theora got me a pack of trading cards from the movie Dune. They are from 1984. It was mentioned that I might not want to open them, in case that would amke them more valuable or something. I opened them. Besides that just being how I am, I figured if they were being sold for $3 at Newbury comics 20 years after the movie came out, they wouldn't be appreciating in value all that much in the years to come. Flipping through the cards, most of the scenes did not look familiar at all, highlighting the amount of time it's been since I've seen the movie. Some I did recognize, though. Besides the movie scene cards, there is also a card that has a sticker of one of the characters on it. However, this is the card that had the bubble gum pressed against it for 19 years. My attempts to remove the bubble gum from the card have so far been fruitless.

At some point, I think I would like to reread the book. I remember really enjoying it, but it has been such a long time.
