Description

    1934 Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals Poster at Oshkosh Fairgrounds. The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals have a storied rivalry which spans all the way back to 1885. While we know the two teams have played in various venues throughout the years, we aren't sure just how many times the two tangled in a different state. Almost twenty years before the Braves ascended onto Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin was an ample host to a Cardinals and Cubs exhibition in 1934. From that contest is this very promotion poster - measuring 22x27". Proudly displayed on the front are mug shots of some of the participants. Although no year is listed we are confident in 1934 being the year of issue as the Cubs hosted the New York Giants Wednesday Aug. 29, 1934, had an off day Thursday and were home again on Friday for a contest against those Cardinals. Definite edge chipping is present on the poster, as are mailing fold marks which result in minute paper loss where the middle fold meets. The edge wear is mainly relegated to the bottom, which has minor paper loss in spots. While the city of Oshkosh is known for Oshkosh B'Gosh and the nation's premier air show, baseball was on the docket in 1934 as the Cardinals and Cubs entertained fans.
