    I haven't posted much lately, but I did acquire quite a few things over the past few months. This is a 1940 Babe Ruth Old Gold cigarette cardboard sign from 1940. It is approximately 10 x 14 in size and is a heavier cardboard than most signs. It mentions that Babe participated in a blindfold cigarette test and there was "not a cough in a carload"; whatever that means. He didn't seem to make many healthy choices. I will probably change to a smaller frame so it will display closer to its original size.

      I have a 6" X 4" heavy stock card of this same advertisement, with a pewter toy attached. It state 1 of 12 to collect. Have you ran across these?

      Great piece of baseball history. I think you would be wise with a smaller frame so as not to detract from the super picture
