Default 1948 bowman box and packs

it looks like the wrappers are surrounding a box?
the edges are sharp and distinct...how many cards are in the pack?
3 pieces of gum?

I thought that, too, although my guess is that they've put some filler underneath the packs to make it look full for the purpose of a better publicity photo.

I'd buy them just for the gum.

Those are some of the weirdest packs I've ever seen. They look so thick.

The way I read it is there is only one card in each pack. One card and 3 sticks of gum. So they must be in a box. What the heck do I know, I have never seen a '48 Bowman pack.

We need one of our members that collected these when they were "new" to chime in and explain what we are seeing and what's inside. It seems like the gum must have been pretty thick to make a pack look like that. Were the gum slabs the size of the pack?
