Darby Chocolates

Post by sabrjay on Fri Apr 10, 2009 10:17 pm

REA has a "new discovery" for the set and this one is also in complete box form. Does anyone else find this odd that such a high percentage of this rare set is found in complete box form?

Good point. How many Darby boxes are there? Seems like half the known Darbys are part of boxes. Yet there's only one know Baseball Snap Shots box (W555s). Has anyone ever found a Baseball Bats or Orange Border box? Think there's at least one J=K box. Can remember if there's an All-Star Baseball or not. Schapira has some boxes out there. Others?

I forget if it's Bats or J=Ks where there is something close to a complete set known on boxes. Not sure if anyone really knows how orange borders were issued.

Jay, I think the set you are thinking of is the Dockman's All-Star Baseball Candy set that Scott Mosely owns. The Baseball Bats box is actually pictured in the SCD book as the picture for that set. The Orange Border "set" was produced by the P. Warren Co. and featured a player on one side and one of the two teams on the other (thus making the teams much more common than the players themselves). I believe I have seen a complete box before but can't remember right now where that was.

Rhett, you are correct on all counts. Thanks

I know there are complete Baseball Bats and J=K Candy boxes out there. I don't recall seeing an intact Orange Border box, but I'm fairly certain that's how they were issued as well. Only have the J=K scan on file right now, but I'll dig around for the others.

Hi Glen,

There are two complete All-Star Baseball boxes that I am currently aware of. One of the boxes I had the priviledge of seeing in person and taking pictures of it for inclusion with my article on the All Star Base-Ball set in Old Cardboard magazine.

I'm 99% sure I have an old auction clipping which shows a complete and in-tact Orange Border box. I'll see if I can locate it when I'm home and post a scan on this thread.

Regards,

Scott

An old time collector has 2 full Orange Border boxes for sure. I have a partial Baseball Bats box and sold a partial one I had extra a few years ago.

This was probably noted somewhere before, but in looking at the two photos on this box, I realized these are the exact same poses used for these players in E94 Close.

Cheers,

I think Cobb is the same pose as well, I used to own that one. I currently have Johnson who is not in the E94 set.

Finally found the image that I was looking for of a complete Orange Border box. I believe this came from a 1990s era REA auction but I no longer have the catalog so I'm not sure.

This makes perfect sense as the team cards are way more common than the players. Looks like you received 1 of the 2 team cards and then a player on the other side. Similar to the Shapira issue that a box contained the Ruth portrait on 1 side and 1 of the other 5 poses on the other, hence making the portrait the more common card. Dan.

Wow. That box is great. Somehow I thought that the box was much bigger than the cards - not sure where I got that notion, but interesting to see that the card occupied an entire panel.

Thx for posting it.

Hey Dano,

You and I had the exact same thought about the Orange Border box when I saw that one panel contained one of the two team pictures. The team cards are definitely much more common than any of the players so I think it is a good assumption that each box had at least one of the two team pictures on it.

Very similar to the assumption that I had in studying my 1910 All Star Base-ball set that a box consisted of one AL and one NL player listed at the same position. It was very satisfying when I researched it for my Old Cardboard article to find two existing complete boxes which confirmed my theory.

Joann, thanks for your post. Most of the candy box cards from the day pretty much took up the whole side of whatever box they were produced on. The above link shows a picture of a complete 1910 All Star Base-ball box made by Dockman which I had the priviledge of seeing and photographing in person for the article.
