Description

Offered is an extremely rare unopened artifact, a 1953 Red Man sealed tobacco package with Bobby Thomson showing. This “20 cent” pouch is sealed by the period tax stamp and is enveloped by a wafer-thin piece of cellophane. The right side of the cellophane is loose and is no longer covering that portion of the soft-pack. On the reverse of the package is the stately image of slugger Bobby Thomson. The surface of the card is wavy due to the tobacco drying out and reconstituting with the package. Otherwise, NL #25 Thomson grades in the (NM) range. This unopened package with the card showing is a near impossible relic from the famed Red Man series.
