Attractive and colorful pair of cardboard window advertising signs, promoting the Yum Yum brand of smoking and chewing tobacco.  The Yum Yum brand issued the N403 baseball card set of 1888, an extremely rare and valuable card issue today that included players from the eight National League teams, along with the Brooklyn Grays of the American Association.  These lightweight cardboard signs each measure approximately 12" x 9" and take the shape of a painter's pallette, each depicting an illustration of an attractive woman, the phrase "Smoke Chew Yum Yum Tobacco" emblazoned at the top.  Each of the two pieces exhibits wear consistent with its age and manner of use, including light toning and staining at the edges, surface abrasions, and a few light tears.  One of the two pieces exhibits some circular indentations at the left side of the image, and both have tears or creases reinforced with clear tape on the reverse.  Still, an attractive pair of advertising pieces for the tobacco brand that produced a rare and desirable baseball card issue.  Two signs total.
