Undervalued, Now Gone

Minnesota ephemerist Gary Hornseth recently unearthed this matchbook (from the long-time Saint Paul institution, Minnesota Chemical) on eBay:

It ended up selling for $3.99 (plus $3.15 in shipping). 

Minnesota Chemical only recently sold its building and moved to a surburb somewhere, leaving behind a contaminated site for the purchasers and the state of Minnesota to clean up.

But they made a nice, though under-valued matchbook along the way.
