Circa 1935 Cuban Sweets "Chicle Piratas Episodios Interesantes" Gum Pack Collection (2)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,293

Two unopened nonsport packs from the Cuban "Chicle Piratas Episodios Interesantes" series, issued by Cuban Sweets in circa 1935. This issue is a Spanish-language version of Gum, Inc.'s 1935 Pirate's Bubble Gum series, with the same artworks as the American set, produced by Cuban Sweets (presumably with the permission of or in affiliation with Gum, Inc.). Each wax pack contains one card picturing, as the title states, an "interesting episode" relating to a legendary pirate, as well as a piece of gum. These packs are from a newly discovered extraordinary find of rare unopened 1930s nonsport cards, all of which are offered in this auction. These unopened packs look exactly as they did when they sat on candy-store shelves with countless others in the 1930s. Also included is an additional single pack that has been opened (includes wrapper and one card, no gum). Total 2 packs. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,293
