Briefly in 1954 and then again in 1958, Gillette promoted a special version of the flare-tip Superspeed on the Gillette Cavalcade of Sports, an NBC radio and then television show that Gillette sponsored from 1942-60. The 1958 version came in a distinctive red case and features a different knurling pattern than standard Superspeeds of the time. 

This immaculate 1958 TV Special shows no signs of use, though at some point it parted company with its case.
