Extras - X-Ray Round Up

These mini cards were among several Topps premiums issued in 1949 along with License Plates -- Flags of All Nations, and Varsity, featuring college football players -- to promote its brands of gum. Fronts of X-Ray cards, packed with tabs of Pixie gum, present color portraits of Native Americans, Wild West figures, pirates, movie stars, and African tribesmen. It's believed the portraits were by Ben Solomon and Woody Gelman, both of whom became Topps creative leaders. Backs reveal a red line drawing overlaid with green lines, which only when viewed through a rectangle of red cellophane "x-ray paper" that came with each card, expose a hidden drawing.
