Likely dating to the late 1940s or early 1950s, this oversized chalk scoreboard advertises Griesedieck Brothers Light Lager Beer.  The St. Louis-based Griesedieck was an early sponsor of Cardinals radio broadcasts until the team was purchased by Anheuser-Busch in 1953.  The sign, in what is likely its original wood frame, measures a very large 48" by 24" with painted graphics over a chalkboard, intended for bartenders to track the scores of up to two baseball games.  In apparent excellent condition, a closer inspection reveals light wear consistent with its age, including mounting holes, very faint chalk remnants, and mild abrasions and wear to the frame itself.  Still, a lovely display piece.
