Original unopened 15-cent pack of 1953 Red Man tobacco, featuring card #10 Pee Wee Reese of the Brooklyn Dodgers on the back, beneath the clear wax-paper wrap, exactly as issued in 1953. This is a very rare and interesting unopened pack that shows exactly how Red Man tobacco cards were packaged. The wrap is largely intact, with only a slight separation visible along the left edge and in the bottom right corner; it remains tightly in place directly over the card. The tax stamps at top are intact, sealing the pack under the wax-paper wrap. This is one of the finest original unopened Red Man packs that we have ever seen, appearing exactly as it did when it was originally sold, and it would be a worthy companion piece to any complete Red Man set or unopened pack collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
