PCGC (PHILADELPHIA CHEWING GUM CO.)

“WAR BULLETIN” TRADING CARDS.

PCGC were formed in 1947 & based in Havertown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia.

They made a variety of chewing gums including the “SWELL” brand pink bubble gum, sold in flat slabs – it was amazing stuff which you could  blow up to grapefruit sized bubbles, second only to the similar block of pink  “Bazooka Joe” bubble gum.

These were packaged up with a variety of Trading Cards (Sports stars, etc.) The “War Bulletin” Trading Cards told “The Story of America’s Fight For Freedom in World War 2”.

It comprised a series of 88 Cards (including the Checklist), each one having a photo, headline & date on the front, with a corresponding news article on the back. These covered the period from Hitler’s 50th Birthday (20/4/39) to the Japanese Surrender (2/9/45).

The cards measure approx  9cm x 6.3cm  (3.5” x 2.5”).

Good news!

This item is a COMPLETE ORIGINAL Set of all 88 Cards.

Bad news!

The  first 14 Cards have some water damage & have lost some of the print which has stuck to the next card in sequence.  See the last 2 photos. This has especially affected cards 1-5, which also have an indent from the elastic band which was wrapped around the pack. Some of other later cards have minor wear to the edges & corners & a couple of the cards have very minor print loss.  The Checklist has been completed with blue biro marks & ticks.

The last 70+ Cards are in good/very good condition considering they are now 48 years old.

Please see photos & email any queries before you bid.

I may consider selling single or batches of cards so 
please email me if this is of interest.

THANKS FOR LOOKING.
