1950s Red Man Tobacco Advertising Posters Complete Set (3)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,276.00

Complete set of all three Red Man Tobacco baseball advertising posters from the early 1950s featuring Ralph Kiner, Enos Slaughter, and Johnny Mize. The Kiner and Slaughter posters have each been signed in blue ink ("8/9"). Full color and perfect for framing. Sets of these posters have virtually disappeared from the marketplace since their discovery in a significant find in the early 1990s. Even when they were first discovered and readily available years ago, few realized that there were not similar quantities of each poster found. Many hundreds of Kiners were discovered, but far fewer posters of Mize, and even fewer of Slaughter, making complete sets of all three far rarer today than some collectors realize. We have been told that reproductions of these posters exist. These originals were purchased directly from the find immediately upon its discovery. Each measures 11 x 15.5 inches. All in Nr/Mt-Mt condition. Total 3 posters. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,276.00
