Item Description:

Offered is a custom example of the very hard to find First Issue 5 cent Mars Attacks bubble gum card wax box that was first issued in 1959 by the Bubbles (Topps) Chewing Gum Corporation of Brooklyn, New York. Topps has produced many controversial card sets with funny horror themes but "Funny Monsters" was the first. Released in 1959 under an alternative manufacturer name, "Bubbles, Inc.," this 66 card set is more popularly known as " You'll Die Laughing " cards from joke title on the back of each card. This set features Jack Davis illustrations whose artwork is well known from E.C. comics, MAD magazine and countless advertisements.
The box was reproduced using an original 45 year old high-grade card box and displays exceptionally well with great colors and all portions complete and intact. Great comic cartoon images of Monsters including the Frankenstein Monster , Werewolf , and the Mummy. As an added bonus for the high bidder we'll include three color copies of the card wrapper to complete the display (additional wrappers are available for a minimal fee should you want to recreate a full box.) As original wax card boxes were meant to be thrown away once the gumcard packs were sold; few examples, especially those in higher grades have been seen offered on eBay. Don't miss your opportunity to finally add this example to your collection without having to spend big $ to do it.

The box is made using hard card stock and then quality printed. The color images remain strong and distinct and t is no assembly required.
