Default 1961 Post: Anyone ever seen these boxes

Picked these up today. I have never seen boxes of this size before with cards on them. Anyone have any information on them? Thanks for the help.476B4087-6910-4302-B429-4179E754E081.jpg

Hi Mike:

My GUESS would be this is just a printers proof. They took some old piece of carton laying around and printed on it just to see how the colors would look etc.

I have other oddball things like this. Fred

Agree with Fred. Printers proofs. Great looking pieces.

Looks like they used leftover boxes to test the die cutting for some other box.

what are the dimensions of this piece?

Ken Marks and I were just talking about it and I noticed the half moon cut outs were like those on a Jello box? He sent me photos of a flat Jello box and I believe it matches up with your piece.

So most likely it is just a test for cutting for the "new" Jello box with baseball cards on the back in 1962
