The top picture shows some cards from Italy, I couldn't resist
buying the bizarre card of Mae West with a Nazi flag and the
complete butchering of Katharine Hepburn's name. They also
got Cary Grant's name wrong and even President Reagan's name
wrong, no respect. The coin completed my set and also shows the
USS Midway, which is now a floating museum in San Diego.

The Flag cigarette box isn't new but I thought it would be
interesting to show it with the Flag actor cards.

Unique find, Mark....for a variety of reasons.

As you know, Roscoe Turner was sponsored by Gilmore Oil. Roscoe also named his pet lion cub, "Gilmore"....and it looks like "Gilmore" the lion cub is pictured on the card. Also, it looks like Turner, not Hawks is pictured. Turner had a unique uniform, and I'd bet that's Turner with Gilmore in front of the plane.

The "57" shown on the wing is also another trait shared with Turner. Turner's tail number incorporated "57" on his plane that was entered in the World's Greatest Air Race (The McRobertson Air Race of 1934).

The print code looks cryptic...at the moment.

Unless memory escapes me, I believe Hawks did travel with a pet dog named "Speed"... Hawks was also sponsored by Texaco (short for the Texas Oil Company I think). Hawks famously flew the Texaco 13 Mystery Ship among others.

So, Turner and Gilmore the Lion Cub featured on front, and Hawks bio on the back of the Heinz card...cool card...there must be a good story surrounding your purchase?

Unique is an Understatement...

Mark,
Very cool card for this April 1st pickup thread! I also picked up one today which must be from that same rare subset:

Greg,

Your Kellogg's Tatoos are from a set of six different sheets of
nine tatoos that came in Kellogg's Shredded Wheat in 1949.
I need number 3 to complete my set.

Ken
