1909-1911 Colgan's Chips Store Display Box

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,972.00

Very rare Colgan's Chips store counter display box (7.75 x 3.5 inches) is designed to dispense the small round tins in which Colgan's Chips ("The Gum That's Round") were sold. We have never seen another example of this Colgan's point-of-sale counter display box. The box has some minor imperfections including some touches of paper loss, but displays beautifully, and is in overall Vg-Ex condition. Accompanying the display box are 1) Two original Colgan's tins (both Ex), each of which once held the round gum and an E254 Colgan's Chips baseball card; and 2) 13 E254 Colgan's Chips cards including Hall of Famers Frank Chance (Vg), Tris Speaker (Vg-Ex), and Cy Young (Vg). Together, the point-of-sale store display box, two tins, and the 13 Colgan's cards could be assembled to create a very impressive and unique display. Total 16 items. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
