    Description

    Yellow Kid High Admiral Cigarettes Advertising Premium Pins: Lot of Twenty. The Yellow Kid was a character which first appeared in Richard F. Outcault's comic strip Hogan's Alley. Outcault's comic strip was one of the first Sunday supplement comic strips in the United States. In the late 19th century Yellow Kid's popularity was such that he became the darling of advertisers and his image could be seen attached to such diverse products as whiskey, toys, chewing gum and as in the case of these pinback buttons, cigarettes. These pinback buttons, most of which measure 1ΒΌ", feature the comic image of the Yellow Kid in various situations, captioned with his pithy comments. Most are in very good condition with the occasional area of soiling or spotting, though one has a significant crack to the celluloid surface. Also included is a 7/8" button advertising Big Bubble Chewing Gum.
