R301 Overland Candy Wrapper Overview

R301 Foxx.jpg

The 1936 R301 Overland Candy Wrappers set is a unique pre-war issue. Not cards, rather, these were wrappers the Overland Candy Company used for various types of penny candy, as advertised on the wrapper.

The wrappers included a player’s image and a biography. While most are printed on a light brownish paper, some color variations of the wrappers such as orange and yellow exist.

Obviously, since most children did not keep the candy wrappers, the bulk of these were discarded, making them extremely rare.
