During the 1920's Red Grange carved his face on the Mount Rushmore of sports; with an adoring public following his every move on and off of the field. Companies were eager to capitalize upon his fame, paying generously for his endorsement of their products ranging from sports equipment, fur coats, malted milk, to candy bars. The Shotwell Manufacturing Company of Chicago and Brooklyn contracted with Grange to endorse their candy bars, which where wrapped with and included images of him. Thankfully for the vintage sports collector some of these mementos have survived, including the 24 count candy bar box offered in this lot. The 2 3/4" x 7" x 9" box presents wonderfully for it's 91 years with vibrant red, white and blue colors and minimal wear. Images of Grange adorn and four side panels as well as the top of the lid. A great companion piece for a Shotwell card or set; or a beautiful display piece.
