This American Icon made his debut in 1931. His gritty comics have survived the decades well and are often reprinted and redistributed even to this day. They were often criticized for their violence but back in 1937 was the third most popular comic behind only Little Orphan Annie and Popeye. Gould even though constantly being criticized for it never strayed from his violent content.

These are absolutely amazing and such historic pieces. These were likely made for the Bicentennial which could not have come at a better time for our Country as it healed so many wounds from decades of strife from the Vietnam War, Civil Rights Movement, Watergate, and a general feeling of malaise that had settled in since the Kennedy assassination. A neat history of how this was put in motion and how much effort was behind it here. https://www.fordlibrarymuseum.gov/library/exhibits/bicentennial/bicentennial.asp

These stickers are becoming very uncommon for obvious reasons. I have trouble selling the last of something and I am going to have to break my rule and keep a pair of stickers from each of the 6 different sets I am listing. Please note old stickers the adhesive is the first thing to go so if you plan to affix to something they are going to need assistance aka glue.

My pictures seriously don't do it justice.

The vintage stickers are a reminder of a bygone era. Museums and Art Institutes have galleries dedicated to them and more and more of them and collectors are seeking these out to preserve their history. Once the limited supply for sale is gone and on display with collectors or in galleries then they will be very difficult to acquire.

Imagine this amazing vintage advertising hanging as home decor in any room of your home instead of a museum!
Imagine if you could be satisfied and content with your purchase. That can very much be your reality with the Vintage Patriotic Bicentennial Dick Tracy Stickers 1975 Chester Gould Chicago Tribune.
