|The pictures below show larger front and back views of all (3) 1971 Nabisco Junior Mints & Welch's Pom Poms Candy Boxes with Non Sports Trading Cards in this lot. The cards on the back were meant to be cut off and saved. The number of cards in the 'Fantastic Fun With Science'' set is (25) and the ''Pom Pom Riddle set is believed to have (30) cards. Boxes that are uncut or complete are much harder to find then cut cards. The answers to the riddles or jokes is printed on the flap on the end flap. If the card was cut, then the answer would not be on the card.|
These complete boxes survived all of these years only because they had been used to store antique fishing lures by a fishing collector. The hand written notes that are seen pertain to the fishing lure that they once held.
The ''FANTASTIC FUN WITH SCIENCE'' card is (#6) and two are from the ''POM POM RIDDLE'' series are both (#21). These were from The James O. Welch Company (Welch's) which was at the time, a candy division of The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco).
All three boxes for one price! The Junior Mints box measures 4'' x 1-5/8'' x 3/4'', and the Pom Poms boxes each measure 3-3/8'' x 1-5/8'' x 7/8''. These boxes are complete and appear to be in excellent condition with some writing as mentioned above and pictured. There is some small writing on the ends as well that can not be seen in the pictures.
