Campbell's Tomato Soup can on shopping bag by Andy Warhol
Campbell's Tomato Soup can on shopping bag by Andy Warhol
Who else but Andy Warhol would use a shopping bag as a canvas...?

Warhol was well known for his 'pop art' images of everyday objects such as Campbell's Soup cans, Brillo boxes, and Volkswagons. Through these images, and the shopping bag in particular, Warhol was making a statement about the "consumer-ization" of America.

These screenprinted shopping bags were published at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston in October 1966. This example is an outlandish orange, red, blue and purple tomato soup can, professionally mounted and framed to 23" x 30".

Mickey Mantle TIP-TOP BREAD label
Mickey Mantle TIP-TOP BREAD label
We must pause to consider the stark moment of this truly rare Mantle item. Tip-Top Bread labels were a phenomenon limited to 1952, and though the product was available nationally, the vast majority were distributed in the Northeast. The label itself was terribly perishable. In the 1950s, bread was wrapped in heavy sheets of wax paper and these labels bearing portraits of ballplayers served the purpose of sealing the ends of the loaves thus preserving the freshness of the bread. Most labels had no chance of ever escaping a loaf end without terminal damage and many were creased the moment they were aggressively applied to seal the end of the loaf. Tip-Top's issue was comprised of 48 different designs which were biased toward the three New York teams. Rewarding it was to thrill to the images of Duke Snider, Yogi Berra or Roy Campanella. But who, in 1952, gave one hoot for some pretender named Mickey Mantle? Even a student of the game saw no particular merit here... really, just a body to occupy center field until the Yankees could find another DiMaggio. Mantle hit an uninspiring .267 the previous year, and as 1952 progressed, it looked like he would probably lead the league in strikeouts -- all quite unacceptable for an aspiring NY Yankee. The upshot of all this relevance is that a piece such as this had to survive 1952 (as most did not) in order to be appreciated a half century later, and of all the labels to save why save Mantle? This early Mantle relic has not only endured the years, but has done so, to arrive at the present in a state of the hobby's most exclusive level of quality. Because of its glorious condition, we surmise that this piece was likely never applied to the retail product. The most accomplished collector in Mantle, or Yankee obscurities must not ignore this splendid piece. Visually near mint/mint and pristine, never having been applied to the end of a loaf of Tip-Top Bread.

Post Cereal advertising display poster sign with Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris
Post Cereal advertising display poster sign with Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris
Rare 1962 Post Cereal retail display poster, featuring Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, produced for Canadian distribution. This is the first example of this Canadian poster that we have ever offered. It is very rare, and one of just a few examples known. The poster differs slightly both in design and size from the American version, but the one constant is the player images used. Issued just after the historic 1961 season, the poster capitalizes on the previous year's epic home-run race between Mantle and Maris by featuring the "M&M Boys" in promotion of the company's baseball card set (which was issued on the back of its various cereal boxes). The likeness of each player on the poster features the image of each that appears on their respective cards in the set, while the text lets kids know that they can obtain "Free Trading Cards On Post Cereals." Mantle and Maris are featured, respectively, on the top and bottom of the poster, with their images inverted, so that the poster could be hung over a wire or string in the local store. When displayed in that manner, Mantle or Maris could be seen from either side of the cereal aisle. The poster displays a few small, very light, stains and tiny surface blemishes, as well as few tiny surface wrinkles. In remarkably fresh and clean condition, especially for a store display advertising poster of this type, the piece presents as excellent/near mint and is perfect for display, as intended. This is an outstanding example of this seldom-seen poster, and one that would be at home in any advanced, Mantle, Maris, Yankees, or baseball-advertising collection.

S&H Green Stamps advertising sign
Large wooden advertising sign for an S&H Green Stamps redemption center. The red S&H letters are raised from the surface of the sign. All of the S&H signs that I've seen are metal so my guess is that this is a rare World War II era piece. Many of the signs from this period are wood or masonite because there was a nation-wide effort underway to conserve metal during wartime.

Whitey Ford wiffle ball
Whitey Ford wiffle ball
Edward Charles "Whitey" Ford spent his entire 18-year baseball career with the New York Yankees. Ford began his Major League Baseball career on July 1, 1950, with the Yankees and made a spectacular debut, winning his first nine decisions before losing a game in relief. Ford received a handful of Most Valuable Player votes despite throwing just 112 innings, and was voted the AL Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News. Eventually Ford became the #1 pitcher of the Yankees. In 1955, Ford led the American League in complete games and games won; in 1956 in earned run average and winning percentage; in 1958, in earned run average; and in both 1961 and 1963, in games won and winning percentage. Ford won the Cy Young Award in 1961. Ford was New York's Game One pitcher in the 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1961, 1962, 1963, and 1964 World Series. He is the only pitcher to start four consecutive Game Ones, a streak he reached twice. Ford retired from baseball in 1967 at the age of 38. He was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame in 1974 with his longtime pal and Yankee teammate Mickey Mantle; at that time, the Yankees retired his number 16.

Presented here is a rare early vintage Whitey Ford wiffle ball toy, mint in the original box. It was manufactured by The Wiffle Ball Inc. in Shelton, Conn. This is one of the earlier type smaller wiffle balls that measures approximately 2 and 1/2 inches across. The ball also comes with it's original paperwork instruction sheet.

DAIRY QUEEN ice cream illuminated advertising clock by PAM
DAIRY QUEEN ice cream illuminated advertising clock by PAM
The soft serve ice cream formula was first developed in 1938 by John Fremont "Grandpa" McCullough (1871‒1963) and his son Bradley. They convinced friend and customer Sheb Noble to offer the product in his ice cream store in Kankakee, Illinois. On the first day of sales, Noble dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert within two hours. Noble and the McCulloughs went on to open the first Dairy Queen store in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. While this Dairy Queen is no longer in operation, the building is still located at 501 N Chicago St.

Dairy Queen (DQ) was an early pioneer of food franchising. Since 1940, DQ has used a franchise system to expand its operations globally, expanding its 10 stores in 1941 to 100 by 1947, 1,446 in 1950, and 2,600 in 1955. The first store in Canada opened in Estevan, Saskatchewan, in 1953. The red Dairy Queen symbol was introduced in 1959. The company became International Dairy Queen, Inc. (IDQ) in 1962. Dairy Queen was a fixture of social life in small towns of the Midwestern and Southern United States during the 1950s and 1960s.

Offered here is a rare vintage electric lighted Dairy Queen ice cream advertising clock manufactured by the PAM clock company.

DUZ laundry detergent soap box
DUZ laundry detergent soap box
Here's an item worthy of a mid-20th century Americana time capsule. It's a vintage unopened box of Duz heavy duty detergent soap, circa 1960s. As an incentive bonus to buy this product, the manufacturer, Proctor & Gamble, included one piece of kitchen glassware in each box which delighted American housewives and homemakers, many of whom would start collections of these, wanting complete sets, and therefore buying lots and lots of soap. Take a look at the family (photographically depicted on the back of the box) oooh-ing and aaah-ing (mostly oooh-ing) over these glasses and you'll see what I mean. This particular example contains a "classic teardrop" juice glass and is in outstanding unopened condition with the juice glass nestled safely inside. Looks just like it did when it came off the shelf 50 years ago. A couple of minor dings on the corners keep me from calling this mint but it's the nicest you'll ever see and possibly a one-of-a-kind rarity.

Jackie Robinson NAACP
Jackie Robinson NAACP "Time To Score For Civil Rights" advertising poster
Presented here is an extraordinary and historically significant Jackie Robinson display item, an exceedingly rare "Time To Score For Civil Rights" poster, circa 1957, featuring Jackie Robinson "going to bat" for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). This is the first we've seen in over 30 years of collecting and trading and may, in fact, be the only surviving example. This poster had been saved by the Jackie Robinson family and was offered by Robinson's widow, Rachel, at an auction about ten years ago.

The poster displays a large image of Jackie Robinson in a batting pose as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. The text reads "Time To Score For Civil Rights." Below that is Robinson's facsimile signature and his title: "Chairman, NAACP 1957 Fight for Freedom Fund Campaign." The larger text at the base, all in red lettering, reads "Give - Join NAACP." In addition to this poster's extreme rarity and historical significance as a relic of an important and turbulent time in America, it symbolizes the dichotomy of Robinson's involvement in the civil rights movement.

When Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947 he did so with the full understanding that he could not fail. Not on the field, or, equally important, off the field. After Dodgers president Branch Rickey had settled on Robinson as the player to shoulder that responsibility, he admonished Robinson that he was not looking for a man with the guts to fight back. He was looking for a man with guts enough NOT to fight back. Rickey knew that if Robinson retaliated in any way to the insults, threats of violence, and other indignities he suffered from opponents, fans, and even some of his teammates, then his noble experiment would fail. Right from the outset, Rickey had warned Robinson of just how difficult it would be: "We can’t fight our way through this, Robinson. We’ve got no army. There’s virtually nobody on our side. No owners, no umpires, very few newspapermen. And I’m afraid that many fans will be hostile. We’ll be in a tough position. We can win only if we can convince the world that I’m doing this because you’re a great ballplayer and a fine gentlemen." Remembering that time, Robinson was later quoted as saying, "Could I turn the other cheek? I didn’t know how I would do it. Yet I knew that I must. I had to do it for so many reasons. For black youth, for my mother, for Rae, for myself. I had already begun to feel I had to do it for Branch Rickey."

For the first two years of his professional career Robinson was true to his word. He resisted the urge to fight back against players who baited him, or be outspoken off the field with regard to segregation and civil rights. And it worked. Robinson's play on the field, where he helped lead the Dodgers to the pennant in his first season, along with his silence off the field, did more for the advancement of civil rights than any series of public campaigns, marches, or protest rallies.

After his second season, Rickey released Robinson from his promise and he was free to stand up for himself on the field, but the difference was that now he was doing so as an equal, as a professional who had earned his spot on the roster, and one who had the backing of his teammates. It made all the difference in the world, both on and off the field. Now, free from his promise, Robinson was finally able to speak his mind publicly about the questions of race equality in the United States. When he retired after the 1956 season Robinson became an outspoken supporter of the NAACP. Earlier, the time demands of his baseball career made his active participation in the NAACP difficult. Once his career ended, he was able to fully commit his time to the cause, as evidenced by this poster.

The NAACP's Fight for Freedom Fund, which began in 1953, aimed to raise one million dollars per year for the NAACP’s anti-segregation efforts. It had never met that goal, but in 1957 Robinson volunteered to chair the fund, with the hopes that he could meet or exceed that dollar expectation. That year Robinson worked tirelessly for the fund, including a cross-country speaking tour that helped raise thousands of dollars at each stop. Robinson's appearances drew huge crowds wherever he went, and his speeches so motivated people that many spontaneously donated money from their pockets at the events. Robinson's efforts paid off and the fund finally met its $1 million goal that year.

This poster was issued in conjunction with that yearlong campaign headed by Robinson, and, as mentioned earlier, is the only example we have ever seen. It is truly a museum-caliber piece in all respects. The poster (17 x 22 inches) has been mounted on board and displays horizontal and vertical mailing folds as issued. Tape residue appears in each corner, and a few light stains are also evident throughout. The poster has been matted and framed (hiding the tape residue in the corners) to total dimensions of 25 x 26.5 inches.

Joe DiMaggio signed restaurant napkin
Joe DiMaggio signed restaurant napkin
After "Joltin' Joe" retired from baseball in the early fifties, he opened a restaurant on Fisherman`s Wharf in San Francisco. It was aptly named "DiMaggio's" and the cocktail lounge featured a drink called the "DiMaggio cocktail". Presented here is an original cocktail napkin from the restaurant signed in vintage ink by Joe DiMaggio himself. The delicate napkin is in excellent condition and the signature is a "10"! This is a chance to obtain a beautifully scripted vintage DiMaggio signature which doesn`t turn up that often as the elusive hall-of-famer was a reluctant signer. Who knows? Maybe one or two DiMaggio cocktails loosened him up a little!!

Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays official baseballs
Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays official baseballs
An unopened pack of plastic baseballs made by Transogram and endorsed by their spokesmen, Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees and Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants. It is still in its original factory packaging with portraits of Mantle and Mays on the attractive double-sided header card. Date of 1963 is in roman numerals (Copyright MCMLXIII Transogram Company Inc). I have handled several unopened packs of this particular Transogram toy but this is easily the best one I have come across because of the pristine condition of the cardboard header card. In superb NM/MT condition with four square corners, it is free of any creasing, and the hole is still un-punctured!

Sears
Sears "BLOW HORN" porcelain trucking road coutesy sign
Sears, Roebuck and Co., or Sears, is a mid-range American chain of department stores which was founded by Richard Warren Sears and Alvah Curtis Roebuck in the late 19th century. Richard Warren Sears was a railroad station agent in North Redwood, Minnesota, when he received an impressive shipment of watches from a Chicago jeweler. Sears purchased them, then sold the watches for a considerable profit to other station agents, then ordered more for resale. Soon he started a business selling watches through mail order catalogs. The next year, he moved to Chicago, Illinois where he met Alvah C. Roebuck, who joined him in the business. In 1893, the corporate name became Sears, Roebuck and Co. The first Sears catalog was published in 1888. By 1894, the Sears catalog had grown to 322 pages, featuring sewing machines, bicycles, sporting goods, automobiles and a host of other new items. Sears, Roebuck and Co. soon developed a reputation for quality products and customer satisfaction. By 1895, the company was producing a 532-page catalog. Sales were greater than $400,000 in 1893 and more than $750,000 two years later. The first Sears retail store opened in Chicago on February 2, 1925 in the Merchandise Building. This store included an optical shop and a soda fountain. The first freestanding retail store opened October 5, 1925 in Evansville, Indiana. During the summer of 1928 three more department stores opened in Chicago. In 1929 Sears took over the department store business of Becker-Ryan Company. In 1933 Sears tore down the old Becker-Ryan Company store in Englewood, and built the first windowless department store, inspired by the 1932 Chicago World's Fair. From the 1920s to the 1950s, Sears built many urban department stores. Starting in the 1950s, the company expanded into suburban markets, and malls in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1959, it had formed the Homart Development Company for developing malls.

Presented here is a rare and amusing and possibly one-of-a-kind Sears truck sign. It reads "Blow Horn/I'll Move Over/Your Sears Driver". It was most probably riveted to the back of a Sears truck as a courtesy to other drivers on America's highways in the 1940s and 50s. First I've seen in over 30 years of collecting and trading.

Sinclair gasoline gas station ULTRAVIOLET RAY Sanitized REST ROOMS porcelain display sign
For a very short while back in the early 1950s, Sinclair gas stations hung a contraption from their restroom ceilings that produced an ultraviolet ray which they claimed would kill germs and sanitize the lavatory. Apparently it was blamed for several health problems and was quickly discontinued. Production of these signs, which were manufactured at that time, was also discontinued.
Offered here is an extremely rare Sinclair gasoline and oil gas station restroom sign announcing the ultraviolet ray sanitized rest room. It is single-sided, porcelain on metal and has all of the original grommets. It is dated 1950 at the bottom. It is in high grade condition with excellent color and gloss and is one of only a handful known to exist.

Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang is an orange fruit-flavored drink, originally formulated by General Foods Corporation scientist William A. Mitchell in 1957. It was first marketed in powdered form in 1959. Tang was famously utilized in some early NASA manned space flights. In 1962, when Mercury astronaut John Glenn conducted eating experiments in orbit, Tang was selected for the menu, and it was also used during some Gemini flights. Sales of Tang were poor until NASA used it on John Glenn's Mercury flight and the subsequent Gemini missions. Since then, it was closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, leading to the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program. Presented here is an early Instant Tang orange breakfast juice drink mix glass jar.

Topps BEATLES COLOR PHOTOS trading cards wrapper
Picture this, if you will...it`s 1964 -- a kid goes into the neighborhood candy store and buys a pack of these cards for a nickel. As he opens the pack, instead of crumpling up the wrapper and throwing it away, he decides that it is worth saving. He is, after all, a child with an artistic sensibility, and he likes the picture. He carefully unfolds the wrapper and places it between the pages of an encyclopedia for safekeeping.

No, my friends, this is not an autobiography, just a guess at how this delicate wrapper may have survived in such fine condition. A companion piece to the Topps Beatles Color Photos display box, this wrapper once held five Topps Beatles trading cards and a stick of gum.

VENTURE INTO SPACE booklet
VENTURE INTO SPACE booklet
The United States space program began in the mid-1950s when the Air Force began working on satellite systems for reconnaissance efforts and for scientific advancement. It was a widely held belief that the country which first made significant achievements in space travel would be recognized as the world leader in military and scientific pursuits.

Many feel that the United States did not exploit its initial postwar advantage over Soviet technology. There is evidence to support the conclusion that American science could have pushed the nation into the space age ahead of the Russians. The key event was the successful launch of a satellite, and the U.S. failed to take the initiative. There would have been enormous advantages to such an undertaking: enhanced national prestige, a lead in the space race, and benefits to national security. The U.S. was dismayed when the Soviets put up Sputnik in October 1957 and in the furor that followed, an epidemic of 'space fever' swept our nation.

At the height of the space race, the American Oil Company published this beautifully illustrated informational booklet. As the title suggests, it deals with outer space and our attempts to explore and conquer this vast and unknown territory. When unfolded, it becomes a huge wall-size poster.

"GUIDE TO NATURAL BOWLING" by Victor Kalman
Bowling has a long and rich history, and today is one of the most popular sports in the world. In the 1930s a collection of objects was discovered in a child's grave in Egypt that appeared to be used for a crude form of bowling. If this was correct, then bowling traces its ancestry to 3200 BC.
English, Dutch and German settlers all imported their own variations of bowling to America. The earliest mention of it in serious American literature is by Washington Irving, when Rip Van Winkle awakens to the sound of "crashing ninepins". The first permanent American bowling location probably was for lawn bowling, in New York's Battery area. Now the heart of the financial district, New Yorkers still call the small plot Bowling Green.
The game had its ups and downs in America. An 1841 Connecticut law made it illegal to maintain "any ninepin lanes", probably because bowling was the object of much gambling. This is why the current tenpin variety evolved.
By the late 1800s, tenpin bowling was prevalent in many states such as New York, Ohio and as far "west" as Illinois. However, details like ball weights and pin dimensions varied by region. On September 9, 1895, at Beethoven Hall in New York City, the American Bowling Congress was born. Soon standardization would be established, and major national competitions could be held.
Bowling technology took a big step forward about the same time. Balls used to be primarily lignum vitae, a very hard wood. But in 1905 the first rubber ball, the "Evertrue" was introduced, and in 1914 the Brunswick Corporation successfully promoted the Mineralite ball, touting its "mysterious rubber compound".
Now organized, with agreed upon standards, the game grew in popularity. In 1951 another technological breakthrough set the stage for massive growth. American Machine and Foundry Company (AMF, then a maker of machinery for the bakery, tobacco and apparel businesses) purchased the patents to Gottfried Schmidt's automatic pinspotter, and by late 1952 production model pinspotters were introduced. No longer did a proprietor have to rely on "pinboys".
Television embraced bowling in the 1950s, and the game's popularity grew exponentially. NBC's broadcast of "Championship Bowling" was the first network coverage of bowling. Coverage proliferated with shows like "Make That Spare", "Celebrity Bowling", and "Bowling For Dollars". In 1961, ABC became the first network to telecast competition of the Pro Bowlers Association. Successful promoter, agent and entrepreneur Eddie Elias founded the PBA, and with his leadership, the Pro Bowlers Tour became a hugely popular stalwart of ABC sports broadcasting. Joined later by telecasts of the Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour (now the Professional Women's Bowling Association, PWBA) millions of Americans witnessed and became interested in the sport.
Today, the sport of bowling is enjoyed by 95 million people in more than ninety countries worldwide.

This fully illustrated AMF Guide to Natural Bowling was prepared by Victor Kalman, bowling editor of Sports Illustrated magazine, with the assistance of a board of 36 famous bowling experts in the late 1950s. This paperback book even has a no-questions asked money back guarantee if, after practicing the methods in this book for 3 months, you don't raise your average score by 20 pins!! Original price 35 cents.
