NOTE: This poster has been three-hole punched, as noted along the left edge.  This is inconsistent with other surviving examples of this poster, which are not hole-punched.  While the punches are visible in the scan, they were not noted in our original description - should any of the current bidders elect to cancel their bids as a result of this new information, please get in touch with us no later than 11:59 PM on Friday, November 19, and we will happily accommodate the request.  All bids on the lot as of midnight on Saturday, November 20 will stand. 

Colorful window display featuring Hall of Famer Bob Feller, promoting the 1953 Topps baseball set.  A well-known image, this 6 3/4" x 11" flyer features a large illustration of Feller's 1953 Topps card, with advertising copy promoting the 1953 series of baseball cards.  The image is very familiar because it has been reprinted so many times over the years, but original examples are very difficult to find.  The sign has been printed on thin paper the image well-centered on the sign.  Some wear is evident in the form of very minor toning, some small staple holes at the top, and a small area of paper loss at the upper-right and lower-left edge.  The reverse exhibits toning, as well as a long strip of sticky area where double-sided tape was once affixed; the piece has long been the centerpiece of a framed display in the collection of Ted Patterson, where it was surrounded by original 1953 Topps artwork.  We will wrap the poster in wax paper prior to shipping, but anticipate that the sticky area will adhere to the paper.
