Vintage 1940s advertising sign extolling the virtues of the popular soft drink Dr Pepper. The advertisement pictures a ballplayer and two pretty coeds as they each enjoy a refreshing bottle of Dr Pepper. The printed slogan along the top border reads "Drink Dr Pepper Good For Life!." This is an extremely attractive advertising display and the first such example we have seen. The sign (15 x 24.5 inches), which appears to be printed on thick cardboard stock, displays a few tiny edge tears; otherwise it is in apparent Near Mint condition, with all of the colors remaining bold and bright. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 19 x 28.5 inches. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
