RMS Sample Matchcover - "Sports Jewelites"
Universal Match Corp.'s modern answer to the Contour, the
"Jewelite" also sported die-cut sides, albeit more uniform.
"Sports Jewelites" are those Jewelites advertising sports teams
or events, almost always with the team logo on the front and
that year's dated sports schedule on the inside. A dazzling array
when displayed, a collector can show off all the big, professional
teams: baseball, football, basketball, golf, etc. Jewelite production
ceased in the mid-1980s just before Universal Match went under.
There are at least 2,450 reported as of 1999.
