The Yellow Kid (small numbers) Adams Chewing Gum - ca. 1905 The Yellow Kid (large numbers) Adams Chewing Gum - ca. 1905
Notes: The 2-3/4" x 4-3/8" cards were inserted with gum. A "first wave" had red-yellow-black artwork, blank backs, and small numbers on card fronts. A second wave upgraded to full-color artwork, large card numbers, and "The Game of The Yellow Kid" described on backs. Cards show the 1896 copyright of the original comic strip. American Card Catalog reference for both varieties is E231.
