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.
