Default Chicle letter

The NRA Code Eagle looked odd to me, so I googled it - I wouldn't have guessed what I found, but it made sense once I read it given it was the 30s (I won't lie, my mind went to National Rifle Association), then I was surprised again as towards the bottom of the page, it mentions the Philadelphia Eagles, the team the letter is addressed to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Eagle

I also looked up Mr. Livingston and was able to find he seems to be the same person who bought up Chicle's assets (at auction) and started a new company, the International Chewing Gum Company when National Chicle went bankrupt in '37. But, according to this thread, Goudey bought Chicle's assets: http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=178905

I was thinking of you when I saw this Gale Sayers lot, Abe, so glad you snagged it! Great pickup.

Carl - I believe at least one full set of the 1960 Football Tattoos was assembled by an advanced collector I know. I am feeling pretty lucky just to have a type example and agree it's the toughest standalone Football set Topps issued.

Here's the one lot I won in BST:
