The current high bid for the complete set, $13,000.00, is greater than the aggregate total of the bids on the single cards that comprise this set, $6,450.00 (this lot is currently winning)

Complete collection of five Lucky Strike advertising trolley card signs, each featuring an eventual enshrinee in the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Among the most desirable of all 1920s baseball advertising pieces, these pieces were issued at the peak of an enormous advertising campaign initiated by Lucky Strike, which included multiple celebrity endorsements - among the first advertising pieces of the era to do so.  Each of the full-color advertising piees include an image of the player, along with a variety of advertising positioning statements and player endorsements, and a large Lucky Strike logo.  

While each of the extremely desirable 21" x 11" advertising pieces make themselves available at auction from time to time, rarely do they appear as a complete set of five.  This grouping originates from the collection of Ted Patterson and was part of his world-class collection of advertising display material.  Ted's collection at one time included a significant amount of important Lucky Strike pieces which included a complete set of the large-format outdoor Lucky Strike ads; those pieces were sold at auction some years ago but Ted retained his set of trolley car signs, which were proudly displayed in his collection until just recently.

We have elected to make these signs available either as a complete set or as individual pieces, depending on how the hobby would like to obtain them. We will give collectors the ability to bid on either the full set or each individual piece, with the higher of the two - either the winning bid on this lot, or the cumulative total of the individual lots comprising the set - awarded the spoils.  Please refer to the individual lot listings for detailed descriptions on each sign.  An outstanding collection; a complete set of all five of the wonderful green Lucky Strike trolley car signs, among the most popular and desirable of all baseball advertising artwork.
