Unlisted

I enjoy posting and viewing unlisted or obscure non-sports cards.
Have you seen these? They are Transfer Varities from the Philidelphia
Gum Company and are 3-3/4" wide by 4-1/8" to 4-1/2" long.
What do you have?

The First 4 are sets of 4 different transfers cut from a strip.

I only have 3 from this strip, but it is clear that the 4th image is
a deep sea diver.


[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Only 2 from this series, but 5 different transfers shown. May have 2
transfers per sheet for a set of 8 transfers.

You have some very cool, very obscure stuff Ken. No wrapper for these?

Hi Ken, I am with you on the obscure and hard types. It is so much fun to find stuff that I haven't seen before ,or stuff that I have only seen in catalogs and could wish to find. I have seen so much great stuff here on this board it has helped to broaden my collecting interests. I picked this card up from another board member this past weekend. Had never seen one before, don't know if it is listed anywhere. It was put out by the American Sweets Co. in the Phillipines, it says there are 250 knockout Bubble gum pictures in the set. Also nice transfers,would you consider those to fall under the R154 category?

I do not know if the transfers had a wrapper or how they were marketed.
If they did have a wrapper I would sure like to see it.

The R154 listing seems to be a catch all category for all transfers and
would probably include these.

I have never seen a card from this series, but since it is from the
Philippines it may have never been marketed in America.

I would still like to see postings of odd, un-usual, unique, obscure or
unlisted non-sports items.

Here is one of my favorites, a 7-3/4" long die-cut ad card.

This is great stuff guys, keep it coming! Here's one that's a little off the wall, not quite up to the standard of what's been put up so far though.

One of my favotite unlisteds Chuck,
from Zieglers.
This is a candy box with cutouts to show face and name of the movie star.
The Card, postcard sized, slides into place; it has a ribbon attached so it can be removed and replaced by another card.

Great stuff Jim...........

Are the Fern Chocolates postcards? Or a larger format trade card? Anything on the back? I have some H.D.Foss postcards that look like the RPPC that you posted.

Wonderful stuff....this thread is a type card collectors dream (or nightmare). I'm interested in the strange variety of stuff put out by the Loose-Wiles company. I've been looking for years for something from their sister company, Loose-Morals, but have so far come up empty.

Love the "Girl of the Sea" card Jim. Here are a couple of fun cards. These are listed in ACC under R755 however these are the only two I have ever seen anywhere and wanted to show the magnificent colors on them and the cool theme. They are Campfire Marshmallows-1959.

Hey Ken, the "transfers" you have are very similar to those that were included with the Philadelphia Gum football card series. They are fairly tough to find these days due to their "throw-away" appearance (meaning people probably used them or threw them away after they got them). Here is a wrapper for one of the years of Philly football cards...
[linked image]

and here is a seller with one of the strips that were included with the 1960's Football acrds. Again, not the same series but similar in many ways...
http://cgi.ebay.com/1966-Philadelphia-Gum-Tattoo-Wax-Insert-Rams-/200610052891?pt=US_Football&hash=item2eb54a7b1b

If Philly Gum was putting these strips with Football cards then they could have done it with any number of other products as well.
