(LOT 623)
1962 Jell-O #6 Roger Maris on Complete Box

RARE MARIS!!! In 1962 Jell-O cards were only sold in the Midwest, making them considerably scarcer than their Post Cereal peers. In lieu of Roger Maris recently breaking the "Bambino's" seemingly untouchable single season 60-homer record, one of the most sought after subjects from the player Jell-O checklist is the legendary Roger Maris; with his COMPLETE JELL-O BOX presented here in miraculous near-pristine condition. Ultra-enticing is the Roger Maris card on the box's verso that reveals his record-breaking 61-home run mark that ultimately earned him his second consecutive MVP award. The front side portrays the standard Jell-O advertisement with the bold red lettering only exhibiting some modest surface wear along the bottom portion of letters "J", "E" and "L" as well as along the right edge of "O". 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 Maris baseball card portraying near-mint+ aesthetics. This Jell-O box is the Apple flavor and doesn't have the Jell-O inside. Tremendous RARITY!!!
