Description



Back in the days when the Marlboro Man rode across TV screens on a nightly basis and smoking was a big part of manly cool, tobacco companies were allowed to associate with sports. From this golden era of health be damned inhaling, comes this 1970 Marlboro sports legends calendar.


Complete and intact, this 12-month wall hanging measures a robust 13-1/2 x 18" and is formatted with six double-sided pages featuring monthly calendars sections, cigarette brand advertising and an incredible array of multi-sport legends, including Babe Ruth, Johnny Unitas, Gordie Howe, Bill Russell, Lew Alcindor, Jim Brown, Warren Spahn, Jackie Robinson, Bobby Jones, Rod Laver, Jessie Owens, Jim Thorpe, Bob Mathias, Man O' War, Leo Durocher, Helen Wills, Jim Jeffries, Jack Johnson and more.


This very nicely preserved calendar shows solid (EX-MT+) detail and impressively crisp, clean surfaces with bold art image graphics throughout. Based on dutiful research for similar examples, it appears that you ain't getting one of these anywhere else, so save the date for early February to make your move on this fascinating advertising piece.
