    GILLETTE TECH RAZOR BOX. Through the history of the game, ball player endorsements have been lampooned by the medium of razors and shaving cream.  In fact, there really aren't that many such commercial approvals.  Here, however, is one which appears to be a marketing assault to coincide with the 1940 World Series.  The product, a Gillette razor is long gone, but the box has survived.  It is a sleeved creation and measures 3 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 1 1/4".  (Within is another, unadorned box to hold the razor.)  The sleeve is about VG (moderately collapsed).  Oddly, of the five endorsers - to include Mize and Pepper Martin - only one World Series participant, Bucky Walters, is included.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
