Description



Hollywood stars shine bright in this 1930s-1950s Dixie Lids premium lot of (180+). These colorful collectibles are ideal for wall display, with glorious images of A-list celebrities, that have a Technicolor quality to them. A lot of ice cream eating was involved in acquiring these photos. Redemption came by submitting lids from ice cream treat packages. Reportedly, you had to send in twelve lids to get one premium, and mathematics indicate a lifetime supply of Dixie products had to be consumed, in order to assemble a collection this large. Part of the redemption program, was the issue of scrapbook covers, of which (8) are included with this hefty hoard. With deference to hole punches, this selection presents in a range of (80% VG to EX, 20% lesser), including several with writing, edge tears (typically at the hole punches), or reinforced hole punches, and also a few that are trimmed or have minor surface loss.
