    Description

    1936 R301 Overland Candy Wrapper - Lou Gehrig. It was genius for Overland Candy Corp. to include baseball players on the very wrapper that surrounded the sugary product. This also meant high-grade examples were all but impossible. Once the candy was gone it seems most of the fragile paper wrappers met a dire fate as today, the 60-subject promotion are among the rarest 1930's issues. Designated R301 in the American Card Catalog, single examples of these paper-thin collectibles are missing from many vintage collections. The set is peppered with stars like Foxx and Greenberg and some rookie called "Deadpan Joe" but the undisputed holy grail is now elder statesman of the Yankees - Henry Louis (Lou) Gehrig. Offered is what must be one of the finest survivors known. Little or lengthy tears, rips, products stains and creasing is so common but are absent here. Even the corners come to nicely defined 90-degree angles. An exceptional looking example for this issue.
