R311 National Chicle Overview


Grange35PremiumThe R311 National Chicle Premium set, produced in the mid 1930s, included 6″ x 8″ photo cards of both baseball and football players. Both individual players and complete teams were available.

In all, there are three recognized sets/subsets here – the glossy baseball set, leather-like baseball set, and football set. The glossy photos are just as the name describes them with a shinier finish. Similarly, the leather-like set has a less glossy stock.

A total of 28 cards are in the glossy set while only 15 are in the leather-like baseball set. 17 cards are in the football subset.

The photographs are black and white and the backs are blank. These items were available as premium giveaways from National Chicle. Collectors could get them by sending the retailer in 20 product wrappers.

Old Cardboard has pictures of the photos in the sets.
