Outstanding collection of items related to Rollfast brand bicycles.  A brand that dated back to the late 19th Century, the bicycles were manufactured jointly between the D.P, Harris Hardware and Manufacturing Company and the H.P, Snyder Manufacturing Company.  Snyder continued to build Rollfast brand bicycles into the 1970s.  As was the case with several bicycle manufacturers from the era, baseball players were utilized as endorsers, and the company produced print advertisements with major leaguers standing aside - or sitting on - Rollfast bicycles.

Presented here are two 8" x 10" photographic premiums, featuring New York shortstops Phil Rizzuto and Pee Wee Reese.  The photos both present well, EX condition, the photographer's stamp (William N. Jacobellis" appearing on the back of each photo.  Both players' names and the year 1951 are written in pencil at the top of each photo.  Rizzuto has signed his photo in black Sharpie.

Also included is an ad sllick featuring the image of Rizzuto incorporated into a print advertisement.  Rizzuto has signed the slick as well.  The slick presents well, but has been folded in half and does exhibit some edge wear and light wrinkling in areas.

Three pieces total, including two signed by Phil Rizzuto.  Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
