Description

    1920's Ty Cobb Candy Bar Wrapper. No, the candy wasn't peach flavored--it was a milk caramel nut bar, distributed by the Benjamin Candy Co. of Cobb's hometown for two decades, Detroit, Michigan. Very little information exists about this exceptionally rare wax paper relic, but instructions at the bottom suggest, "Write for premium list. It is Free. Save The Wrappers." We aren't sure what prizes were available, but the status of these wrappers as redemption tickets of sorts (and, of course, the delicacy of their construction) would explain their scarcity today. This example exhibits mild creasing and a touch of foxing (or is that caramel spotting?), but presents beautifully. It's surely one of the finest of the microscopic surviving supply. Measures 6x6".
