In 1926 the Shotwell Candy Company used Red Grange to market their candy bars; producing two sets of cards that were included with their product. The first set, generally referred to as "ad backs" consisted of twelve numbered cards featuring Grange in a variety of poses. These cards can safely be categorized as scarce and are seldom offered. For reasons unknown, Shotwell produced two variations of card number 9; the more common version titled "Illinois Famous Halfback". A second version, which may have been offered as a chase/redemption card or replaced the earlier card number 9 later in the print run, is titled "Red calls this his lucky number" and shows Grange in his famous number 77 jersey.

While the Star Player Candy and Rogers Peet Grange cards are represented by only a handful of examples each, this offered example represents one of only two know examples making it Red Grange's rarest football card. The card has been graded BVG 1 for obvious signs of wear; but is fully intact and presents well. The same image used for this card can be seen on one of the Shotwell wrappers that is offered as a separate lot in this auction.

A possible once in a lifetime opportunity!
