Lot # 340 (of 873)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

E.G. Goudey and Harold C. DeLong Signed Promissory Note

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $345.00

Dating from the earliest days of the Goudey Gum Company, offered is a 1922 letter on Goudey Gum stationery, promising to pay their printer the sum of $1000 in six months, with interest computed at the rate of 6%. 1922 was long before Goudey produced gum cards, so the printing bill was very likely for wrappers for their very popular Oh Boy Gum. The note is signed by both E. G. Goudey, namesake and founder, as President of Goudey Gum, and Harold C. DeLong, as treasurer. In the early 1930s DeLong would leave Goudey to form his own gum company, to compete with Goudey. This is a fascinating and unique piece signed by two of the key figures in bubble-gum card history, and the only document that we have ever seen signed by E. G. Goudey. Excellent condition. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $345.00
