Heavy cardboard gum advertisement from a trolley car (trimmed to 11” x 20”).
DOWNEY GOES, DEEP-SEA DIVER, BUBBLES__”I LIKE WRIGLEY’S FOR DIVERS REASONS. IT SUITS ME RIGHT DOWN TO THE BOTTOM. TWO THINGS I CAN’T DO WITHOUT; A STEADY SUPPLY OF AIR AND WRIGLEYS.
Fantastic illustration of cartoon fish and a little aquarium diver holding a stick of gum underwater next to a giant SPEARMINT arrow in green.
BUCK BRONCO, COWBOY, YIPS “WRIGLEY’S IS MY BRAND! IT’S ALWAYS IN MY SADDLE BAG. NO OTHER GUM CAN COME WITHIN RANGE OF ITS FLAVOR. RIDE WITH WRIGLEY’S! THAT’S A GOOD STEER.”
Cowboy lassoing a bull with one hand on a dopey looking cartoon horse, holding Wrigley’s in the other hand. Giant green arrow reads SPEARMINT.
Seems to have been printed slightly off center, nothing is missing but an even border. Signed Art Helfant who worked for DC Comics the 40s-50s doing “filler comics.” Wonderful art work on either side. Was always two pieces, taped together. Some nicks, scratches and pinholes to be expected. $75.
