Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This large 36" x 26-5/8" framed cardboard advertising sign features 39 members of the 1960 Boston Red Sox organization, including good ol' "Teddy Ballgame" himself (top row, third from right). The bright full-color image appears on thick card stock, with the words "YOUR RADIO AND TV HOST" appearing along the top, a clear indication that this poster was issued by Narragansett Beer. (The sign, however, makes no specific mention of the beer company.) Team members include: Delock, Sturdivant, Brewer, Worthington, Geiger, Thomson, Gile, Sullivan, Stephens, Ted Williams (in his 19th and final major league season), Clinton, Hillman, Webster, Runnels, Keough, Chittum, Wertz, Jacson, Borland, Buddin, Bowsfield, Sullivan, Casale, Sadowski, Green, Coach Maglie, Baker, Juges, Manager Herman, Coach York, Monbouquette, Fornieles, plus batboys, trainers, equipment managers and the team's travelling secretary. There are light scratches and scribbles in the periphery that can only be seen under close scrutiny. About EX in appearance, with brilliant color. The piece remains mounted in a period wooden frame.
