Lot # 1517 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1935 Dietz "Zip Bubble Gum" Unopened Pack

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $235

Unopened pack of Zip Bubble Gum, issued by the Dietz Gum Company of Chicago, Illinois. We are unsure exactly what this issue is, and it does not appear to be listed in the standard reference guides. According to the text on the back of the wrapper, this pack contains one stick of gum and a colorful transfer that can be applied to any fabric. The text also instructs kids how they can redeem forty wrappers to receive an extra-large transfer "big enough to fully decorate a jacket, shirt, etc." The pack displays only very light handling wear and otherwise appears exactly as it did when originally issued. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $235
