Description:
Detail from illustrations found on Goudey Indian Gum in 1933. Depiciton of John Brant (Ahyouwaighs -sp.) was pictured along with an image of "Luqaiot" and another image simply titled "wampum". In 1933, the Goudey Gum Company produced one of the most complicated and controversial non-sports issued gum ever produced. The Indian Gum set (R73), with card backs routinely labeling Native Americans as "cruel," "bloodthirsty" and "murderous," was unveiled in several series and is chock-full of variations and scarcities. The set consists of 216 cards, each measuring 2-3/8" x 2-7/8". Card fronts display brightly colored and artistically rendered depictions of Native American chiefs, warriors, generals, frontiersmen and Wild West figures, as well as native rituals, survival practices, war tactics and battles.
