Back in 1960, kids used to take a penny into a candy store and come out with a packet of Baseball Tattoo Bubble Gum. We didn’t even have to read the directions: 1. Moisten hand slightly. 2. Apply inside of wrapper-pat gently. 3. Peel off carefully. We knew exactly what to do. During 1960, in addition to issuing a series of 572 baseball cards, Topps offered “Tattoo Bubble Gum.” The penny package (each measured approx 1 1/2”) featured players, autographs, etc. that could easily be applied to the skin. You could imagine how thrilled Moms were when their children come home with a tattoo! This is an original Topps Baseball Tattoo 120 count display box that could have come right from the candy store or Topps directly. The inner display box is VG but displays as NRMT. The rare outer box is also included, E with tape along the sides. Speaking of “Moms,” the rear panel of the green and white box has a printed “Commended” seal from Parents’ Magazine. The 60s were a difficult period for those who lived through the tragedies. But who could argue that Bazooka Bubble Gum helped to create happier moments. That’s why this ultra-rare collectable tattoo
display package will definitely attach well to your collection!
