CCBCo SUPER-SIX ASSORTMENT
This six-lure assortment is the rarest of the three different cataloged
"six-pack" Creek Chub combo sets. The Super-Six set was offered from only
1921-1925! The other six-lure sets were dubbed the Select-Six & DeLuxe-Six.
They were sold well into the 1930's. The Super-Six has some features that
set it slightly apart from the other combos.
1. It has built-in partitions between each of the lures. These partitions
& the interior bottom are covered with the same dark teal color paper
as the exterior. The other two combo boxes have an open interior bottom.
Each lure nests in its own insert similar to the bottom half of an individual
2. Each Super-Six lure is illustrated & described on a label inside the
lid. One clue that identifies this as an early combo, even if you don't
have access to vintage CCBCo catalogs, centers on the DeLuxe Wagtail bait
in Goldfish. It is numbered #808 on the interior label. This is a number
used by CCBCo for this lure & color until sometime during 1925. It was
then changed to #806.
There is another six-lure assortment box pictured in Dr. Smith's book
on CCBCo. However, the box has NO markings nor is there any reference
to it in any Creek Chub catalogs. Today, it remains a mystery. Shur-Strike
also issued a "six-pack" set marketed under the name of "Brooklure". Other
collectors have told me it was produced for Spiegels.
In any case, the Super-Six, Select-Six & DeLuxe-Six constitute a complete
grouping of marked CCBCo "six-packs".
