Book Condition: Very good


This has to be the oddest trade card ever produced. I've had it for many years and, as you can see, it is part of the montage photo at the top of my website. I have finally decided to let it go even though I have still never figured out why the guy's head's ripped open to expose a rather creepy child inside. The turns of the "paper" look so real it's amazing. The card was issued to sell "the greatest of all blood purifiers." It's larger than average and measures 4-1/2"x6" and has numerous testimonials at back showing how effective it was for curing dyspepsia, biliousness, sick headache and constipation. The card was given to customers by H.T. Hess Druggist, Jackson Centre, Pennsylvania. Card shows a small bit of edge wear and toning to bottom corners on reverse side.
