Circa 1933 PX3 "Double-Header" Discs in Original Unopened Pack
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $6,463
Extraordinary unopened pack of PX3 "Double-Header" discs, issued by Gum, Inc., of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Even the wrapper for this issue is extremely rare and only a few examples are known. An unopened pack is unprecedented. This is very likely the only surviving unopened pack of Double-Headers in existence. The multicolor pack (3 x 1.5 inches) pictures illustrations of Al Simmons and Chuck Klein on the front and advises collectors to "Put 1 and 2 together and make a Double Header." The Double-Header discs are very similar in appearance to pins but are actually metal discs of various colors that feature portraits of ballplayers. Forty-three different players are known. Inside the unopened pack are two Double Header coins and a piece of gum. The wrapper has a little soiling but is otherwise in Excellent condition. The two enclosed pins are presumably in Mint condition. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $6,463
