An extraordinary piece related to the St. Louis Cardinals, likely dating to the late 1920s or early 1930s due to the style of Cardinals logo. Nearly 10" in height, the piece is printed on delicate paper, and was meant to be displayed on windshields or glass by wetting the glass and affixing the piece face-out.  The reverse identifies the manufacturer as the Buxton & Skinner Printing and Stationery Company, and includes the catchphrase "Hold 'em Cards!".  We have not encountered this piece before, but find it an incredibly interesting precursor to the many team-oriented car decorations of the present day.
