This is for an EXTREMELY Rare VINTAGE June 20, 1914 Colliers magazine Tuxedo Tobacco advertisement / display featuring Christy Mathewson and John McGraw - the Hall of Fame Pitcher and Manager for the New York Giants !
Also has Joe Tinker and Jimmy Archer of the Chicago Cubs, Nap / Napoleon LaJoie of the Philadelphia Phillies / Athletics and Cleveland Naps, and Jack Stuffy McInnis of the Athletics and Boston Red Sox.
This piece of memorabilia offers great graphics, photographic images of a half dozen greats of the day - complete with facsimile autographs - and the creative musings of some long-ago writer extolling the virtues of Tuxedo tobacco: "Tuxedo is mild, healthful, wholesome, beneficial. If it wasn't, these ball players wouldn't continue to smoke it. . ." This is the first example of this magazine display that we have ever offered, and just the 3rd one I have ever seen ! It is very rare, and one of just a few examples known.
FOUR Great Baseball Hall of Famers on one piece !!!
This visually impressive magazine ad measures 10 x 14 inches with minimal wear - has a very light paper wrinkle at the top, and down the middle, and very slight tear at the top on the fold, but color and clarity is great, and framed and matted would be a really nice display piece !!
Great piece for any fan/collector of 'Big Six' or 'The Little Napoleon' !
In pretty clean condition for over 100 years old, especially for a magazine display advertising piece of this type, and is perfect for display, as intended !
This is an outstanding example of this seldom-seen piece, and one that would be at home in any advanced Mathewson, McGraw, Tinker, LaJoie, Giants, Cubs, Athletics, or baseball-advertising collection.Don't be fooled by cheap photocopies or trimmed editions that DON"T have the magazine title at the top of the page, or a crappy page tore (and torn) out of a magazine - this is the REAL DEAL !!!
Would look great in your home, den, office, bar, or 'man cave' !!
Christmas is coming up, and would make a great gift for any collector or baseball fan !
