Description

Offered is a group of (11) multi-sport vintage event broadsides. These advertisements and fliers were proudly displayed for decades in a pub, and thus are off-grade. Despite a combination of wear (including the majority being affixed to cardboard backings), these broadsides provide an interesting glimpse into the American sporting landscape of the 1920s-1960s. Included sports are baseball, basketball, (2) boxing, (2) football, racing, tennis and (3) wrestling. For a complete list of events and dimensions, please visit our website.
