Advertising poster, issued in promotion of Old Judge Irradiated Coffee, commemorating the 1942 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. The design features a central illustration of two cardinals, surrounded on all four sides by portrait images of 26 members of the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals, including Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter, manager Billy Southworth, Mary Marion, Harry Walker, George Kurowski, Johnny Hopp, Morton Cooper, and Walker Cooper. The bottom portion of the piece advertises for "Old Judge Irradiated Coffee." This piece was actually issued as a wall calendar; however, the tear-away calendar pages, which appeared below the Old Judge advertising, have been removed. The poster (14 x 24.5 inches), which is printed on thin paper stock, displays numerous creasing throughout, as well as a few small tears. In Fair to Good condition overall (without reference to the calendar pages having been removed). Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
