I wasn't old enough to drive in 1964 but my parents had a car, I believe it was a Dodge Polara, and we visited this World's Fair in Flushing Meadows three or four times... sorry, but looking at this license plate makes me feel very nostalgic!

Mickey Mantle Fan Club pinback
Mickey Mantle Fan Club pinback
Presented here is a simply extraordinary example of the "King of All Postwar Baseball Pins": the circa 1952 Mickey Mantle Fan Club celluloid pinback. With fewer than five known examples, this pin is a legendary collecting rarity, both as a baseball pinback, and as a significant Mickey Mantle item. It is no accident that this pin is one of the few which have the honor of appearing on the cover of the 586-page hardcover book Baseball Pinback Buttons by Paul Muchinsky (2004, Great Oaks Press, Summerfield, N.C.). The Mickey Mantle Fan Club pin holds the record at auction for any postwar baseball celluloid, when Barry Halper's example sold for $12,650 in the famous Halper auction in 1999 (Lot #1546). The pin was available for a very short time by mail only to members of Mickey Mantle's fan club very early in his career.

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.

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.

Lyndon Johnson
Lyndon Johnson "Support Johnson and Civil Rights" pinback
Rare and classic Lyndon Johnson civil rights pinback dating from the 1964 presidential campaign. The red, white and blue pin features a portrait image of Johnson in the center, with the American flag on his left and a donkey (symbol of the Democratic party) on his right. The lettering on the pin reads "Support Johnson and Civil Rights". This is universally regarded as the most significant and desirable of all Lyndon Johnson campaign pins. In addition to the scarcity of this pin, it is also a condition rarity, as this is an easily damaged litho pin, with the design printed directly on metal, as opposed to a celluloid pinback. The passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 was one of Johnson's signature achievements in office and, as this pin shows, civil rights was still an important issue in the 1964 campaign, especially since his Republican opponent, Senator Barry Goldwater, voted against the historic Civil Rights bill. This is an outstanding example of this classic and rarely seen political pin dating from Johnson's 1964 campaign.

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
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 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.

Vintage pinback button issued on April 14, 1964 when Yogi Berra was honored by the New York Yankees on opening day at Yankee Stadium.

"Bubble up" soda bottle cap advertising display sign
"Bubble up" began in 1919 as a lemon-lime carbonated soft drink and was produced ten years prior to its well-known competitor, "7up". The brand was owned by the Bubble Up Company, Inc. of Chicago. With the tag line, “a kiss of lemon, a kiss of lime”, "Bubble up" was distributed in the Coca-Cola bottler network prior to Sprite.

This is an original "Bubble up" soda bottle cap advertising display sign. It was made by the Press Sign Co - St. Louis and is stamped "3494-M" on the lower right.
