    1920's Schapira Brothers Candy Card and Original Boxes Collection (7 Pieces). Offered is a very scarce 1921-22 Schapira Bros. "Big Show Candy" card featuring child actor Wesley Barry. Acting since he was just seven, Barry first worked for Kalem Studios but his freckles and a role in Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm made him famous. Later he became an director and producer. Also offered are six vintage Schapira Circus parade packages. Includes: 1) 1-7/8 x 2 3/8" black & white card of Wesley Barry, encapsulated SGC Authentic. Complete with the horizontal crease that seems to be synonymous with this issue; 2) Larger 5-Cent "Pak-O-Joys" approx.. 3 x 3-3/4 x ¾" tri-color box. One inner tab is partially separated, one panel has a crease, otherwise excellent-plus condition; 3-7) Five different "Big Show" Candy & Toy boxes. These are 1-3/4 x 2-5/8 x ½" designed to be align to make a Circus Parade of Animals. Includes Lion, Giraffe, Seal, Hippo and Monkey. Three have faults putting condition at the FR to GD level. Be sure to see elsewhere in this auction other Schapira Candy baseball cards and boxes.
