Description: Chesterfield Cigarettes Baseball advertising display piece c.1947. Cardboard advertising display measures 21"x22" matted and framed picturing six baseball stars of the period including Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial, Bob Elliot, Bucky Harris, and Ewell Blackwell. The players are pictured endorsing Chesterfield brand cigarettes with an image of the package at the center titled "The Baseball Man's Cigarette". Overall appearance remains very strong with rich, vibrant original color. The sign itself has some creasing primarily around the center area which, although not light, does not greatly detract from its appearance. There is also a small piece of vintage surface tape at each corner which could be removed via conservation if so desired. One of the more desirable baseball related advertisements of its type from the 1940-50s period: VG-EX
