Just Born - Mike and Ike - personalized t-shirt offer - candy box - 1970's

A classic 1970's Mike and Ike box, featuring a "personalized t-shirt" offer on the flap. I was always more into Hot Tamales, but my cousin Jeff would often bring over a box of Mike and Ikes, and I never refused them.


This comes from the "Munktiki Collection", a large lot of consumer goods packaging saved and stored by Californian Paul Nielsen during the 1970's. A collection I recently acquired and will be documenting here.
