This wonderful piece starts off with a 5 x 6" framed painting of Dick Tracy and "Junior" that comes attached at the top center of the main piece. Professionally mounted is a rare 19" x 8-1/4" retail store paper sign trumpeting "Dick Tracy, Ace of Sleuths. Read his fascinating Stories. Enjoy a Fine Piece of Candy." Plus scenes from there of the R41 trading cards. All for just 1-cent. Below that are six openings showing the fronts and backs of the actual card #'s 14 Junior Make a Discovery, 22 Dick Tracy Pulls Through and 24 Tracy Sets a Trap, the same scenes used in the store sign. Next is a rare "Dick Tracy Caramels" paper wrapper and "Dick Tracy Caramels" flat showing the front and sides of the 1-cent box. Both offering "FREE Colored Picture Stories" in each bar. Finally we have a 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" Dick Tracy premium complete with "To My Pal" salutation. Each item does not appear to have any condition issues and this is the first example of a store sign we have encountered.
