Description


Classic original 1948 Chesterfield Cigarettes advertising display poster, 20.5 x 18, featuring baseball stars Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial, Bob Elliott, Ewell Blackwell, and Bucky Harris surrounding a large pack of Chesterfields, "The Baseball Man's Cigarette." The display piece identifies the teams and accolades of these accomplished pitchmen—Elliott and DiMaggio were the reigning MVPs of their leagues, and Harris was manager of the world champion New York Yankees. Four of the men appear to have cigarettes in their mouths, while Williams holds up a pack. Framed to an overall size of 23.5 x 21. In very good condition, with light staining, and a large tear to the left side passing through Elliott's chin. A classic, vivid piece of cigarette advertising widely considered to be one of the most visually attractive baseball ad displays of any era.

Due to the size, weight, and or fragile nature of this item, special shipping arrangements may have to be made.  Please contact RR Auction for a quote.
