(LOT 38)
Super Scarce Complete 1963 Hank Aaron Jell-O Box/Card

Virtually synonymous with the 1963 Post Cereal baseball card issue was the 1963 Jell-O baseball cards printed on the standard sized Jell-O boxes sold in grocery stores, supermarkets, etc. The set is complete with 200 cards with some common players being very scarce based on the fact they were issued on unpopular Jell-O flavors or sizes. Also interesting was that the Jell-O cards were only sold in the Midwest, making them considerably scarcer than their Post Cereal peers. One of the most sought after subjects from the 200-player Jell-O checklist is the legendary Hank Aaron; with his COMPLETE JELL-O BOX presented here in miraculous near-pristine condition.

Incredibly, the box is completely intact, with advanced collectors well aware of the fact that virtually 99.9% of avid baseball fans cut the baseball card from the Jell-O box to place in their treasured baseball card compilations. How or why this box remained unscathed will forever be shrouded in mystery and a sheer joy to its next owner! Ultra-enticing is the Hank Aaron card on the box's verso in sttrong condition. The front side portrays the standard Jell-O advertisement, that is slightly faded, with the red lettering only exhibiting a minor touch on the bottom right side.

The yellow hued area includes the text: "Baseball Trading Card on back" with a black & white glove & baseball situated directly to the right of the caption. No obtrusive creasing, tears or surface damage is evident on either side, with the critical Aaron baseball card portraying near-mint+ aesthetics. We simply cannot imagine another Aaron Jell-O box possibly matching the jaw-dropping visual appeal of this "unique for the aesthetics" gem. An unfathomable keepsake from 1963, this miraculous box included Cherry flavored Jell-O. A great piece of Aaron memorabilia for the best of the best collection!!!
