Posted By: <b>Jeff Shepherd</b><p>This is a photo I recently dug up depicting "Topps Chewing Gum Corporation" at an industry convention back in the summer of 1957. You can see a beautiful life-sized Ted Williams display piece in the background, as well as a large Bazooka Gum sign. The three rep's photographed include Herman Fine - Field Sales Manager, Miss Joyce Shorin (likely a sister of the owners), and Charles Zubrin - Merchandising Manager.<br /><p><br /><img src="http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/ladypaper/July1957ToppsAtConvention.jpg" width="786" height="507">

Posted By: <b>Jeff Shepherd</b><p>I don't think that's Cracker Jack next to them, but that would be an insane convention to stroll down the aisles of. <br /><br />Hoping that Williams piece survived the last 50-years.

I am researching Charles Zubrin at the moment-he apparently is still alive and living in New Jersey!
