The RAREST of all Gumby figures. This is the only one I have ever seen still in its original package!
It was the first Gumby figure made by Art Clokey Productions.
These were made only once in 1965 in very small numbers . The Card is marked Patent PENDING 1965! After the release of the Gumby TV show in 1965 Lakeside Toys took over production and distribution of all Gumby figures. The Lakeside figures were made from a completely different mold. The head shape and hands are not the same, and the packaging was completley re-designed. (See other Gumbys in this section for details).
The packaging has some wear and soiling with some small openenings in the plastic of the card.
This item is in the top ten of rare items in my collection.
