I either have missed comments on this or it has gone without comment yet but REA is auctioning one of the Premiums and has the story of why Adams-Pepsin Tutti Frutti Gum issued it as their parent bought Colgan's right at the time of marketing and issue. So far as I know this is the first time the premium has been identified.

What do you all think?

We had a thread on this quite some time ago. I think the board consensus was that no one had ever seen a Colgans premium identified as such. If they existed, then they probably had no markings to identify them as a Colgan's premium. I guess we were wrong!

I remember the older threads discussing the rarity of the premiums. When I went to REA, I was surprised at how "low" the bidding was on it at this point. So many more "common" items are through the roof already.

It will be interesting to see where it ends up. Cool team shot.

I remain a bit skeptical on the item, despite the links brought up about the two products both being owned by the same parent company. It just doesn't quite add up to me, but I respect Rob's opinion to believe this to be the Colgan's premium.

I'm with Rhett... I don't think that this photo would be what was contemplated by the Tin-Top offer. If it had Auto-Sales on it I'd think it more likely.

I have an old piece of Adams Tutti Frutti gum. Not sure why the photo in REA is considered a Colgan's premium...seems a bit of a leap of faith is expected here.



And oddly enough I found this in with stuff my great grandmother saved all from the same era which included a Colgan's tin with gum in it and an Ornate pin (non baseball)

Here is an ad on the back of an E270 tin top.... I am not sure how much of a leap of faith the picture is since it is exactly what is said on the back and from the same mfg?

edited to add that I also agree with the write up REA did...and it seems logical to me.

There is a great Colgan's Chip article in the new Old Cardboard (#19). Well worth seeking out and the premium gets a nod too.
