Printed on the cards was information about a Bazooka bubble gum contest from 1957. When he discovered no year on the contest, Day decided to enter. Day looked up scores from July 19, 1957, scrawled them into the entry form and sent it off to Tony Jacobs, global general manager of Topps Confectionery Brands.
Day explained, per Brumfield: "When I found those cards and saw those contests, I said, 'I just have to do this and see what happens.'"
Jacobs and Topps honored the contest and sent Day a Louisville Slugger glove as a prize. According to Brumfield, Jacobs and Day are now "on a first-name basis."
