Bench Warmer 2013 Bubblegum Supermodel Trading Cards

Bench Warmer’s 2013 Bench Warmer Bubblegum Supermodel Trading Cards series is a throwback of sorts. Not only will you find a pink slab of gum inside every pack but the base cards are printed with the thick white border so many cards used to have.

The cards are gorgeous and so are the girls. You’ll recognize a lot of the girls from other Bench Warmer series though there is a generous array of “rookie cards” here too. The back feature information about the girls: their hometown, birthday, loves, hates, etc. as well as a one paragraph bio. But hey, most will be more interested in the card fronts for shots of their favorite Bench Warmer models such as Sara Underwood, Brande Roderick, Billie Jo Powers, Mary Riley, and Crystal Hefner. The series even boasts the rookie card for Benchie, Bench Warmer’s loyal and faithful mascot, a rescue dog found right in front of Bench Wamer’s West Hollywood’s offices.

2013 Bench Warmer Bubblegum Supermodel Trading Cards base card

There are 110 cards in the complete base card set. With six cards per pack and 24 packs per box, there’s not a lot of wiggle room for finding a complete base card in a box. Our box was missing 12 base cards but did make up for it in other ways. Read on…

There’s plenty of chase cards inside boxes of 2013 Bench Warmer Bubblegum Supermodel Trading Cards. Our box yielded five of the 72 autograph cards (five!). Boxes are supposed to contain three autographs so we’re thrilled to get five. We also got one of the eight Carmen Electra cards; two of the 18 Hot Moms cards; three of the 20 Boot Camp cards; two of the 18 All American cards; and none of the 20 different Swatch cards.

You might note that the list of chase cards on the back of the box is incorrect. What we’ve listed above is correct as given to us by Bench Warmer. With the exception of the autograph cards (which again, we’re certainly not complaining about!), the rest of our inserts were spot on according to the stated odds. The swatch cards are the most difficult to find, appearing just once per eight boxes (or four per case).

This is another winning product from Bench Warmer.

    Agreed. Great set. Love slowly putting a mini master of this set together. Wish their website was updated too.
