These covers did get their message across! The one for Bat Cigars included an offer on its inside where by sending 2 empty packs and $2.00, a person would receive a Louisville Slugger Little League or softball bat.

The second two plug old Buffalo, NY businesses. The Lafayette has recently been refurbished to its former glory. DiPirro's has been closed for awhile, note their 6 digit phone number.

    Thanks mustangtony for the love and the comment. Yes, the lack of a zip code does pre-date DiPirros before 1963. I appreciate your input!!!

    Hi, walksoftly...thanks for the love, and for the nice comment. I think that we all regret disposing of some of our childhood collections. Maybe that's why as adults, we get involved in collecting things from the past! I know that this is one of the reasons that I collect old items!!!! Have a good day!!!!
