We have the exact 1902 The Yellow Kid Figural Soap without the box and a little darker in color than the below one that sold at auction for $1200. Soap is in near mint condition but the face has darkened.
Below is a link to the story of the The Yellow Soap Kid for the Hearst newspaper.
"1902 The Yellow Kid Figural Soap - sold for $1200.60
This incredible, Near Mint condition bar was made from molded, buckskin colored soap in the likeness of that lovable orphan of the Hearst papers. With black painted eyes, a brilliantly animated face, and a nightshirt that read, "Dis Soap is Grate See!" this likeness of the Yellow Kid was manufactured by David S. Brown & Co. Perfumers of New York. Also in Near Mint condition was the packaging of the soap, with another image of the kid in a nightshirt that read, "Oh! But I'm Full of Lather.'"
