Circa 1930 Al Simmons Cigar Boxes (2)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $580.00
Two varieties of "Al Simmons Home Run" brand cigar boxes ("Milwaukee's Favorite"): 1) Traditional fifty-count box (2.75 x 9 x 5.5 inches) features Al Simmons at bat on the interior label. Exterior side label also features Simmons at bat. 2) Miniature "Al Simmons Home Run" brand box (5.25 x 2 x 4 inches) has "Al Simmons" deeply burned into the top of the wooden lid, and stenciled on the side of the box. Interior label is very rough (poor condition) and is actually an exterior side sealing label from the larger standard-sized Al Simmons cigar box. Box is otherwise in Very Good condition. This small Al Simmons box is a very unusual variety which we have not seen before. Also included is an Al Simmons cigar with original cigar band in Nr/Mt condition. Al Simmons Cigars was a very popular Milwaukee-based brand in the 1930s. Milwaukee was Al Simmons' hometown. Total 3 items (two boxes plus cigar). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/600. SOLD FOR $580.00
