Description

    1950's Ted Williams "Champ" Prophylactics Lot. Despite Ted Williams' strong Catholic New England fan base, the makers of "Champ" brand prophylactics figured it would be a good idea to use The Kid's image to help folks keep from having kids themselves. Presented here is a fun assortment of pieces from this marketing campaign which made unauthorized use of Ted's image. First we have five unopened three-packs of condoms. Next are three light cardboard sleeves, each made to hold four packs. And finally, and most scarce, is the original counter-top box, which once held "One Gross Rubber Prophylactics." While the "Champ" logo is featured prominently, the box is the only piece that does not picture Williams specifically. The box shows some crushing and seam separation but still presents very well. The balance of the pieces present as NRMT.
