Robert F. Kennedy Bubble Gum Cards

After the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June, 1968, the Philadelphia Chewing Gum Corp. rushed out with a commemmorative, 55-card set of RFK bubble gum cards. It presented "the story of Robert F. Kennedy... with bubble gum."

Kids must have been rushing out to get these.

The cards seem to have appreciated reasonably well in price. Individual cards now range from $3 to $26 in price. You can get an unopened pack for about $65.

No pics of Bobby helping Marilyn down the steps of the White House at midnight?

@KDP: Marilyn Monroe bubblegum cards would have been a much bigger hit.
