This item has been in my family for over 50 years, we have tried since 2005 to find information about it. It has led us to a couple of gentlemen by the name of McDowell & Eddy from Los Angeles, CA. We have also found out that this advertisement might have been used in the 1948 Los Angeles Major League Exhibition Game Program Cubs vs Indians. I was told that this game that the men in the picture are playing is a game of rounders which predates baseball, instead of players using gloves they caught the ball with their bare hands and to get the opponent out you had to actually throw the ball and hit them with it in order to be considered out. This particular print is 9.5 inches by 9.5 inches, printed with "Indian ink" on cheese cloth. We are not sure if this was a prototype like a swatch type example but if anyone has more information to share or could point me in the right direction please feel free to respond!
Thanks for looking!

    The Grand Slam logo is correct for the Company Grand Slam so it was advertising their Ice Milk one would think it could have been given out anyplace to promote their product . They are not shown looking like a baseball team and rounders is possible . Great Piece and I love it
