bb10 Johnny Weissmuller is best known for playing Tarzan in films of the 1930s and 1940s BUT as the world's fastest swimmer in the 1920s he won 5 Olympic gold medals and set 67 world records! Yet it is as Tarzan, a role he played in twelve films, how he is best remembered.  This is UNFOLDED and UNCREASED - which is unknown in the history of this 1958 issue, as all of these wax paper inserts were folded and wrapped around gum, so this, being un-folded, and  without creases (apart from between wrapper and picture, with staple holes as issued) it's exceptional!

EXTREMELY RARE in this unfolded, not creased, excellent plus/MINT form yet only GBP 35.00 Sterling.
