Lucky Club Bottle Company was started in 1938 and this is one of the first newspaper ads that I could find.

Another early ad from an Illinois newspaper that shows the same bottle as in my collection. A 1938, 7 ½ ounce embossed Lucky Club. Well,mine does not say cola and I haven’t seen any bottles that do, however that does not mean there isn’t one.

Lucky Club was also known as the Lucky Club – Orange Crush Bottling Co. in 1939. I found an ad and luckily, I have the bottle to match.

1943 and Lucky Club announces a new bottler in St. Louis for their beverages. I featured Moore Brothers Bottling Co. in a previous thread. I am guessing here that The Lucky Club Co. got out of the bottling business and concentrated strictly on the flavored syrup business. I find no other listings of Lucky Club as a bottler.

I have seen a lot of Lucky Club trade ads as well as ones for Holiday. Holiday was a soda that came in many different flavors. Here are images of trade ads with their matching bottles.

Here are the rest of the Lucky Club bottles in my collection. A 7 oz. aqua glass dated 1947 in the first picture. A 7 oz., 10oz., 12 oz., and 32 oz. all from the mid to late 1940’s in the second picture.
