    Description

    Very Rare 1955 Spic and Span Milwaukee Braves Partial Set (8/18). "Spic and Span" was a dry cleaning chain based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They may not be listed in any dry cleaners HoF but to the hobby they are famous for their annual promotions that featured the Milwaukee Braves. Their first promotions appeared in 1953 but by far, their rarest and most innovative promotion came in 1955 in the form of large due-cut stand up cards of 18 home town heroes. These Black & White premiums are made of thick card stock and all measure up to 8" wide and 8" tall. Between the need for die-cutting, removing the backgrounds and then folding portions to allow the impressive mini-statues to stand, high grade examples are almost impossible. Overall this set is so rare an example in any condition is missing from even advanced type-card collections. Includes: Hank Aaron, Lew Burdette, William Bruton, Gene Conley, Del Crandall, Johnny Logan, Eddie Mathews and Bobby Thomson. See our web site for a detailed condition description.
