About me.

Turbo, bi-bib, Final, Lazer, Tipi-Tip, Bombibom, OtoMoto, Pembo, Cin-Cin, Kobra, Mertsan, Cup ’94, Minti, Cola, Ask Meleği, Patbom, Motor Show, Top Gun, Pembo… Do you remember them?

The undersigned is one of the few collectors of gum inserts who did not abandon their childhood hobby. Or, to be more specific, he put it on hold for about 13 years and when he discovered the internet he took out the shoebox from under the bed. Long live technology that brings people (and especially collectors) together !

Currently my collection consists of over 11,000 gum inserts, cards and stickers. It’s one of the largest collections in Romania and it seems that I’m the only one in my country that possesses the complete collection of Turbo series.

For this type of collection, the (modified) saying Value is in the eye of the beholder is perfectly fit. Unlike stamps and banknotes, gum inserts are not “officially” recognized as collectibles, so there are no catalogs or albums and therefore they have no official value. Because of their lack of material value, many threw them away, but exactly this is one of the reasons I collect them. I think that would be a pity for them to be lost. Do not forget that some collect buttons, beads, toothpicks…

If you want to be up to date with all my new gum inserts acquisitions I post on this site, use the form on the upper right corner.
Another easy option is Facebook: facebook.com/colectionarul.de.surprize. I will mention every site update in the profile page, so you can add me as friend anytime.

If amongst you there are current or former collectors willing to make exchanges, donations or just want to get rid of their gum inserts for a money compensation, then please click here:

Have a nice browsing. Start with TURBO, of course 🙂
