Attractive 11 1/4" x 20 1/2" cardboard advertising display featuring Cubs manager Jimmy Wilson in his street clothes (nice saddle shoes), crouched in a catcher's stance, mitt in hand, pipe in mouth.  Advertising Granger's "Mild Cool" pipe tobacco, he is pictured on top of a giant blue pouch of Granger tobacco, set against a bright yellow background.  The piece presents very well, bright and colorful, with professional restoration to reconstruct worn corners and repair some spots of color in a few places, notably on Granger's catcher's mitt.  Tastefully and professionally done, the restoration encompasses a very small percentage of the overall piece.  Some mild wear is evident elsewhere, notably a small crease at the right edge near Wilson's mitt, perhaps 2" in length.  Dry-mounted to a foamcore slab, held in place with plastic shrink wrap, the mounting prevents us from examining the reverse.  Still, an attractive piece, not often seen.
