The history of my Turbo wrappers
I am sure that, everybody has ever chewed Turbo-chewing gums
(they used to cost around €0,03).
When opened the packaging, there was a mini poster inside
that raised the value of the chew-gum a lot.
I can remember at
begining of the 90's people bought that Turbo chewing-gums
for the taste of them and others only for
the mini posters.
Of course kids always bought them just before the
annoying the teachers with that and
making jealous schoolmates if they happened to get a rare picture.
I admit, I bought lot of Turbo-gums myself,
but there was a shop for collectors nearby my primary school in Hungary.
(Budapest, Káposztásmegyer- Primary school of Lakkozó utca.)
Shop of Feri, where nothing is impossible...
You could not only buy sweets there but the was also selling
everything that was for collection such as
basketball-cards, kinder figures, mini toys, stickers or of course Turbo-miniposters.
I have got the majority of my collection from here.
At the beginning most of the Turbo-wrappers cost 0.03 €ur each,
but once somebody sold a huge amount of them there
so as a regular costumer I could by them for 0.015 €ur/each.
But that is past now. I did not brother with them for years and
meanwhile the technology was moving forward.
Now is everything is avaible online.
And like everybody else, I also have downloaded many things
like pictures, musics, books, etc.
My opinion is that, if I take something from the "world",
than I should give something back...
Hereby, I would like to share my picture collection with the public on these pages
to make older and younger generations happy.
I hope my hard work was not pointless.
I wish everybody a nice browsing and if you have a little time
start collecting Turbo wrappers right now, as it is never too late!
