Description

    1933 Tattoo Orbit R305 Advertising Sign. In 1933, Tattoo Orbit chewing gum, owned by Wrigley, produced two unique sets of trading cards. One was a self-developing baseball photograph/card measuring just 1-1/4" x 1-7/8." The black and white cards were given the designation R308-1 in the American Card Catalog. Many believe they were meant to be a second series, or high number series, related to the standard 1933 R305 set, which featured only baseball players.

    This advertising piece, measuring 8.5x14," is for that R305 Tattoo Orbit baseball series, produced in full color. Paper is in Excellent-Mint condition with just the normal paper folds and a slight loss of paper where the pasted area (meant to be adhered to a window) was folded to touch the bottom of the ad. Absolutely stunning graphics in bold and bright colors, this looks as if it was printed today. A fabulous and ultra rare piece for card and advertising collectors.
