Topps reissued the red and blue back cards in the Doubles packs in 1952 without the caramel. Two cards for a penny. It's one of their first reissued products and your wrapper is definitely from '52. The original 1951 issue was called Baseball Candy and those wrappers are much tougher thanks to a Doubles find three decades ago.

I remember back in the mid/late 80's my local dealer had a ton of those Red Back packs for $10/per. You could see through the wrappers so he let me pick through them. I found one with a Bob Feller in it. I opened it years later, but still have the wrapper.

Default Toughie

Back about 1983, while sniffing around a small local card show, I picked up this little gem from a table and asked the dealer what he wanted for it. He seemed to have no idea what it was, and I only half-suspected that it might be the elusive candy wrapper because I had a dim memory of the famous Teddy batting pose from that year. He let me have it for a fiver.

That is amazing Steve. I was happy with a busted up wrapper. Had never seen an unopened pack

Sorry to disappoint, guys - it's just a wrapper, folded up and kept in a sleeve. Don't I wish that it had contained panels. If it had, though, as I recall from my ancient childhood, it would have been an All-Star card sandwiched by Redback panels, so perhaps could only have seen the backsides.
