    Scarce 1938 R55 Gumakers "Frank Buck" 1-Cent Wrapper. Frank Buck was a noted 20th Century adventurer, known for his motto to "Bring 'Em Back Alive." With no decoration to speak of, the quality illustrations are left unencumbered, leaving every action scene involving lions, tigers, elephants, snakes and a multitude of wild species from some exotic location. This is a chance to acquire a scarce 1-Cent wrapper, a homage to the man who lived the life every little boy who resided in an urban jungle dreamt of. From the deepest, darkest heart of the Gumakers imagination. There is one edge "ding" into the top edge and standard circulation folds.
