As American culture has “evolved” over the decades, once-popular habits have since fallen out of favor. The offered framed 1940s advertising display defines those former traditions on several fronts. Framed to dimensions of 33-3/4 x 39-3/4” under “Dodger Blue” matting, this “Chesterfield Cigarettes” point of sale advertisement features former Brooklyn Dodgers hurler Whit Wyatt as the tobacco product’s willing spokesperson. The ad appeared sometime during Wyatt’s storied tenure (1939-1944) in Flatbush and boldly proclaims “AT ALL THE GAMES – IT’S CHESTERFIELD.” Like many athletes during that era, Wyatt had no problem being associated with the product. Nor was he shy about throwing at opposing hitters, as many accounts have skipper Leo Durocher depositing cash atop Wyatt’s locker for every batter he hit. Ah, the good old days! Note. Because of the size of this item, a shipping surcharge will apply.
