Printed on the sides of Bazooka gum boxes that contained 25 pieces of penny gum, the 1959 Bazooka cards were colorful, large-format (nearly 3" x 5") cards that are among today's most popular oddball issues of the 1950s and 60s, and certainly the most difficult to complete of all the Bazooka sets.  As with any card that appeared on the outside of a box, the 1959 Bazooka cards are extremely prone to surface wear.  Additionally, the hand-cut nature of the cards typically yields an AUTHENTIC grade due to irregularly-cut borders.  Presented here is a high-grade example of one of the issue's key cards, a clean and well-centered specimen with immaculate borders and a clean, unblemished image.  Simply a beautiful card.
