Willie Mays CHESTERFIELD cigarettes advertising sign
7500.00Buy
A large 30" x 30" full color store advertising poster for Chesterfield cigarettes featuring a young Willie Mays - the "say hey!" kid - proclaiming "SAY HEY! THESE CHESTERFIELDS ARE GREAT" - and signed [printed facsimile signature] "Willie Mays N.Y. GIANTS' STAR". Madison Avenue clearly recognized the talented and charismatic Mays, along with Jackie Robinson, as the first highly marketable African-American athletes of their era. The heavy paper stock sign is in near mint condition and is professionally matted and framed. Very few of these are known to exist.
