    Description

    1956 P.F. Flyers "Big League Baseball Stars on TV" Advertising Sign. Another selection from the "Pittsburgh Find" of rare cardboard baseball advertising signage recently rescued from a half century's service as wall insulation--see the finest two pieces offered as a single lot in the Live portion of this Platinum Night auction. This representation would stand with those most desirable models if not for a degree of water staining apparent at right edges of the sign, but the balance of the graphics are as strong as ever and the delicate die-cut construction remains relatively unharmed with just a few small bends at the top corners. Some minor paper loss at lower edge (constructed to serve as part of the base of the stand) will be invisible upon proper display. Among the celebrity endorsers are Ted Williams, Duke Snider, Yogi Berra, Al Kaline and Red Schoendienst. Horizontal center fold as constructed. Easel back remains in place on verso. Dimensions at widest points are approximately 22x27".
