    Very Rare 1911 Plantista Tobacco Display Poster of Female Golfer. Offered is a very rare, hand colored advertising sign promoting "Smoke Plantista" tobacco showing a copyright date of 1911. Someone must have truly appreciated the full-figure portrait of a smiling female golfer as any sign from the early 20th century is rare let alone one with a female athlete theme. Although for 1911 this could actually be considered risque. The poster measures 12" x 20" and does have some surface and edge marring in spots plus a penciled name and evidence of exposure to moisture on the reverse. The thick cardboard still lies flat and presents at the very-good condition and would make a fun addition to any golf or tobacco advertising collection. Certainly a piece where few can still exist.
