Very interesting 1933 R305 Tattoo Orbit package featuring pitcher Rube Walberg inside a one-cent glassine wrapper (slight tear on reverse). This Chicagoland artifact also includes an original sealed Orbit Gum wrapper and a pair of slips, one of which is adhered to the tattoo while the pink "No Riders" note is affixed to the reverse of the otherwise (VG) card. Very few examples of such packaging have surfaced and this piece gives pre-war collectors a glimpse toward how the R305 designation was produced and distributed.
