1926 Shotwell's Candy 5 cent wrapper featuring Red Grange. Capitalizing on Grange's fame in the mid 1920's, companies such as Shotwell's paid high fees to secure his endorsement. This example is considered to be the most rare of the Shotwell's Grange wrapper variations; and features four of the images used on the actual Shotwell cards including the card number 9B "77" pose (that card is offered as a separate lot in this auction). In addition to images of Grange on the wrapper, a facsimile endorsement for Shotwell by Grange is part of the design.

The 6" x 9" wrapper is in very condition; displaying extremely well with a few creases and a small tear in the bottom border.. Two scans of the wrapper are shown; one with a white backing and the other with only the glass scanner bed beneath the wrapper.

An incredible and highly desirable display and/or companion piece for the Shotwell Grange "One Minute to Play" cards. One of two variations of Shotwell's wrappers offered in this auction.
