Bright and colorful 18" x 18" cardboard advertising display promoting Mother's Cookies and advertising the free Mark McGwire baseball card featured in specially-marked packages of the company's product.  In just his third full season, McGwire was a fan favorite in 1989, having led the league in home runs his rookie year of 1987 with 49, and followed up with 32.  The Athletics would finish the season 99-63, and sweep the crosstown Giants in the World Series.

The sign presents well, but does exhibit a tear nearly 2" long at the right edge, near the image of the McGwire baseball card.  A few small creases are visible, notably at the upper-left, where a white scuff can also be seen.  Edge and corner wear is also evident.  Still, an outstanding display from the days before the steroid controversy blew the lid off the home run chases, when Mark McGwire was still one of the most popular players in the game.
