1933 Uncle Jacks Candy Unopened Pack

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $1,392.00

Uncle Jacks are one of the rarer and lesser-known candy issues of the early 1930s. Like Goudey and National Chicle, Uncle Jacks was based in New England. The company issued only one thirty-card set. Each blank-backed card in the set was issued in red or blue duotone. Cards were sold in a see-through wax-paper pack with one card and a coupon per pack. The coupon featured advertising for Uncle Jacks and information about a contest to attend the 1933 World Series. About thirty years ago an unopened box of Uncle Jacks surfaced in the hobby. Every once in a while an unopened pack turns up. All are from this single legendary find. Presented is one of these unopened packs, saved in its original unopened state by an old-time collector. Burleigh Grimes is on top. The pack also includes the original candy and coupon. The pack is in Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$300. SOLD FOR $1,392.00
