    Description

    1947 Stan Musial Chesterfield Cigarettes Advertising Sign. Though "The Man" took home the National League Most Valuable Player Trophy on three separate occasions, this colorful sign recalling the days when tobacco and baseball walked hand in hand is generally attributed to the year following Musial's 1946 honor. Regardless of one's personal convictions about the product Musial is touting, no collector of vintage advertising signs could fail to be impressed by this heavy cardboard relic from a bygone era. A degree of wear, visible in the form of wrinkling that extends along the bottom edge and a 3.25" tear that has some color added and appears to have been reinforced along with very light staining. It does little to detract from the marvelous aesthetics. The sign is professionally framed to a size of 26" x 27" while the visible image measures 20.25" x 21.5".
