Description

Offered are the possibly unique 1933 Goudey Gum Company trademarks and patents for the Big League Gum series and the accompanying wrappers. The three-page trademark for Big League Gum was approved on 9/26/33 and given an expiration date of twenty years. The single-page label trademark was issued 6/20/33 and was not given an expiration date. These approximately 12x8 declarations are accompanied by the moderately worn original envelopes. The ephemera is lightly soiled and is accompanied by signatures of the appropriate government authorities. This lot comes with a letter of authenticity from William Thompson, son of George Thompson, former owner of the Goudey Company until its closing in 1962; these items came directly from the Goudey Gum archives.
