If aged tobacco and pristine baseball cards are your thing, we’ve got just the ticket: an unopened “pack” of Red Man Chewing Tobacco, complete with the original wax paper packaging and a pristine Dusty Rhodes card (obviously, with Tab) on the back and yummy, well-aged chewing tobacco inside. This was the final year of a four-year run of Red Man Chewing Tobacco offering handsome full-color cards of many of the great stars of Major League Baseball. Talk about rarity! This is the kind of thing that is seldom encountered, a complete pouch of the chewy stuff just as it must have sat on the counter a mere 62 years ago. The pouch is 3 ¾-by-5 inches, neatly housing the 3 ½-by-4-inch card, in this instance No. 22N of Dusty Rhodes, the two-homer hero of the World Series that previous fall. The appropriate federal tax stamp is visible across the top. The pouch is in the original wax paper, with some slight wear at the corners of the wax paper. There is a 1 ¼-inch piece of tape across a slight tear on the back near the top, with another smaller 3/8-inch tear adjacent. The wax paper has some of the normal, expected crinkling.
