Lot # 716 (of 873)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1950 Topps Football Window Advertising Poster

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $4,312.50

This very colorful poster advertises the 1950 Topps Football Felt Back series. Picturing a selection of cards and measuring 5 x 12 inches, the poster was distributed by Topps exclusively to store owners, for display on candy counters or in candy store windows. This is the very same example which originally sold in the legendary Sotheby's Copeland sale of 1991, where it appeared as lot #602 and realized $770 at that time. It has been consigned to this auction directly by the original purchaser at that landmark sale. This is an extremely significant and rare card-related poster, advertising the very first football set ever issued by Topps. One of only several known. With three vertical folds as made. A few remnants of paper on the reverse from use as intended, otherwise Near Mint condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $4,312.50
