    Description

    Ultra-rare large-format beauty!

    1928 Lucky Strike Large Outdoor Advertising Banner Featuring Lloyd Waner. While the standard format "trolley signs" from the late 1920's partnership between Lucky Strike Cigarettes and several of the top stars of our national pastime surface on the auction block with limited regularity, it was been well over a decade since this ultra-rare format crossed our doorstep. Boasting commanding dimensions of 30x60", this wall-filling canvas relic ranks among the rarest and most desirable of pre-war baseball advertising pieces.

    "Little Poison" is little no more as he showcases his fielding skills as a member of the reigning National League Champs on this gargantuan showpiece. Our masterful restoration artist has judiciously filled in various signs of weathering to coax the ancient beauty back to its original glory, but we can assure interested bidders that the strong majority of the surface area is untouched. Original storage folds remain, as do the nail or tack holes used to secure the display during the Golden Age of Baseball. Far rarer than any Van Gogh or Picasso, this relic represents an opportunity for the advanced baseball advertising collector unlikely to be repeated.
