Summer is almost here, and PACM readers who enjoy watching the “Boys of Summer” on TV or at the ballpark might enjoy reading about one of baseball’s most collected players, Jackie Robinson. Robinson, the first African American to play Major League baseball, has a plethora of memorabilia devoted to him: cards, magazines, comic books, uniforms, movie material, dolls, toys, autographs, and more. Robinson is now in the spotlight again with the release of the new film “42,” bringing on another round of memorabilia.

Charming, Nostalgic, and Collectible: Advertising Postcards Of Commercial America by Roy Nuhn

Vintage advertising postcards offer a panorama of daily life in America at the turn of the 20th century and shortly beyond.

near the end of the 1890s. But the artistic, colorful and truly unique ones so highly prized by today’s collectors came along between 1903 and 1920. Deltiolgists - picture postcard collectors - number in the tens of thousands, and they belong to dozens of clubs scattered throughout the land. Among the hundreds of topical specialties collected, the advertising category rates very high

Postmarked 1909, this postcard by Domino Sugar portrays product boxes.

The picture postcard itself was the culmination of countless and diverse 19th-century developments in photography and printing. Among its predecessors were trade cards, cartes de visits, pictorial stationery and other Victorian ephemera. The use of such postcards for advertising began extensively after 1900. They proved to be not only among the cheapest kind of advertising available, but one which seemingly enjoyed a longer life span than most other mass media. Even today, with television, radio and the Internet available, postcards continue to be used by companies to promote their products or services. By all accounts, it is reckoned that the advertising postcard as we know it was born

on the list of all-time favorites. The reasons are the same as for anyone who collects and loves other types of American advertising: historical, cultural, beauty, nostalgia and, of course, the magic. There are thousands of different cards to be found. Some, like a Buster Brown Christmas card laden with Santa Clauses headed for Bloomingdale’s Department Store in New York City, are extremely rare; others, like Egg-O-See Cereal’s 1907 Jamestown Exposition handout, are much more plentiful. Many were issued in sets, and a few companies kept publishing them for many decades. By far, the largest majority of advertising postcards were published and distributed as singles.

sented as souvenirs to tourists and guests visiting the plant or home office, made available to customers as free writing paper, or packaged with the merchandise as premiums. Some were used for corresponding with customers about orders, complaints, etc. A few were even used by traveling route salesmen to announce their imminent arrival. Every imaginable product, service and commodity has been advertised on the picture postcard, especially home and food products. Most of the major companies of that not-solong-ago time utilized the postcard idea. Many of them, such as Kellogg’s, Heinz, Lipton, Chesterfield Cigarettes, Campell’s Soups, and Ford, are still with us. Taken together, they are also a remembrance of goods and companies no longer with us, including 5A Horse Blankets, Glidden Auto, Edison Phonograph, Kornelia Kinks Cereal, Bevo, and many more.

Though most single advertising postcards were given away free, many of the sets were handled differently. Often, the consumer had to mail in a couple of pennies or some postage stamps to cover mailing costs, along with a box top or two. These sets are the most popular and most elusive of all.

Jackie Robinson Memorabilia Always A Hit With Collectors By William J. Felchner

Jackie Robinson’s place in baseball history is secure. In 1947, Robinson broke the “color line,” joining the Brooklyn Dodgers and becoming the first black player in major league baseball. Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia, on January 31, 1919. While attending UCLA, the athletic Robinson won varsity letters in four sports: baseball, football, basketball and track. Following a two-year hitch in the Army, Robinson played for the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro Baseball League in 1945 and for the Montreal Royals of the Class AAA International League in 1946. From 1947 to 1956, Jackie Robinson - sporting his famous #42 - plied his talents for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson won Rookie of the Year honors in 1947 and was the National League’s Most Valuable Player in 1949. Inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1962, Robinson, suffering from the ravages of diabetes, died on

October 24, 1972. Jackie Robinson is one of the most collected players in the sports memorabilia field today. Robinson memorabilia is legion, and includes such items as cards, magazines, comic books, uniforms, bats, movie material, calendars, toys, dolls

and autographs. Some of the earliest and most valuable Jackie Robinson artifacts date from his high school days. Robinson’s 1937 senior yearbook, The Sequoian, from John Muir Technical High School (Pasadena, California), is big with collectors and can top the $1,000 mark in excellent condition. Robinson also attended both Pasadena (California) Junior College and UCLA. A collection of three Pasadena Campus yearbooks from 1937, 1938 and 1939 - all of which prominently feature Robinson - brought $215 in one auction. A 1940 UCLA Southern Campus yearbook in which Robinson is celebrated as “the big man on campus” is valued at over $500. Jackie Robinson baseball cards date from 1948 to the present day. Robinson’s “rookie card” is entry #79 from the 194849 Leaf series. One example in graded SGC 84 near mint condition recently sold at auction for $2,031.50. Other collectible Jackie Robinson 1952 Topps Robinson cards and their winning card, $3,107.

at auction for $717. Jackie Robinson advertising-related items are among the most interesting in the field. A 1946 Cremo Sparkling Ale poster picturing Robinson (then with the Montreal Royals) and Brooklyn manager Leo Durocher is a rarity, with one example selling for $575 at Robert Edward Auctions. Similarly, a 1947 Homogenized Bond Bread advertising poster featuring an endorsement from Robinson and his family brought a top bid of $1,044. A Jackie Robinson 1950 advertising calendar is more affordable,

Lobby card from 1950s “The Jackie Robinson Story,” $118.31.

with one example bringing a reasonable $60.95 at auction. The Jackie Robinson composition doll, crafted by AlliedGrand circa 1950, is a must for any serious Robinson collector. Near mint examples have been known to sell for several thousand dollars. Even a full-page toy trade catalog ad touting the doll is highly collectible, valued at $25 or more. Jackie Robinson continues to make headlines. On April 12, 2013, Warner Bros. released the sports biography “42” starring Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson, with Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, Nicole Beharie as Rae Robinson, Christopher Meloni as Leo Durocher, Ryan Merriman as Dixie Walker and Lucas Black as Pee Wee Reese. And along with that film came another round of Jackie Robinson memorabilia, including movie posters, stills, press kits and other promotional items. Signed Jackie Robinson Hall of All photos courtesy Heritage Fame plaque postcard, $1,434. Auctions, Dallas, Texas.

of 12 cards, each of which pointed out an important advantage of having a telephone in the home. Other favorites are the 18-card “Berry Brothers Varnish” and “Tip Top Weekly,” noteworthy for picturing Frank Merriwell and all his cohorts. Ad agencies frequently economized by using the same illustration for many mediums, and a goodly number of postcard graphics were derived from magazine advertising art. This is especially true of Fisk Tire and Domino Sugar. Poster art and advertising go hand in hand, and often the combination of the two on a postcard produces marvelous results. Quickly to mind comes the many travel posters, such as Holland-American Line, the publicity issues for several international expositions and

local fairs, and Gillette’s trademark baby shaving himself. The years since 1920, while not comparable to the “Golden Age” of advertising picture postcards, have not been completely barren. Held in high regard are the kitchen appliance ad cards by Westinghouse, Kitchen Aid, General Electric and Frigidaire in the 1930s to 1950s era. Also highly sought are pre-World War II radio and post-war television advertising. Another bright spot are the cereal makers, especially Kellogg’s, who have given us an impressive array of colorful, delightful cards featuring Tony the Tiger as well as Snap, Crackle and Pop. Advertising postcards offer a unique glimpse at our nation’s yesteryears, at how Americans lived and played, and the many wondrous consumer and business goods available to them from the nation’s giant industrial, retail and service sectors.

“M*A*S*H” (Continued from page 5)

“M*A*S*H” was more Vietnam than Korea, a sarcastic, bawdy, gory, irreverent antiwar film that apparently struck a resonant chord with an increasingly skeptical, war-weary public. In one memorable scene, the exasperated head nurse Maj. “Hot Lips” O’Houlihan declares,

“M*A*S*H” Polish one-sheet poster, $131.

“This isn’t a hospital, it’s an insane asylum!…” Perhaps a metaphor on the Korean or Vietnam Wars, as envisioned by director Robert Altman. The initial reviews for “M*A*S*H” were mixed. Reported Roger Greenspun of The New York Times (1/26/70): “Although it is impudent, bold, and often very funny, it lacks the sense of order (even in the midst of disorder) that seems the spe-

Comprised of eight 11 x 14-inch color cards depicting various scenes from the movie, these sets were displayed in movie theater lobbies for promotional purposes. One set in near mint condition fetched $127 at auction. For those who wish to learn more about “M*A*S*H,” check out the official “M*A*S*H” movie pressbook put out by Twentieth Century Fox back in the day. Originally distributed to movie theaters, these pressbooks contain “M*A*S*H’s” entire promotional campaign, complete with images of sample movie posters and accessories. “M*A*S*H” was rereleased to movie theaters in 1973, generating yet another round of movie posters, stills and lobby card sets. A 1973 “M*A*S*H” re-release insert poster (14 x 36 inches) in very fine+ condition sold at auction for a reasonable $27, while a 1973 lobby card set in near mint condition brought $33. Rerelease posters and lobby cards bear a 1973 copyright, thus distinguishing them from the original 1970 versions. As the PA announcer at the 4077th declares: “Attention. Tonight’s movie has been “M*A*S*H.” Follow the zany antics of our combat surgeons as they ‘cut and stitch’ their way along the front lines, operating as bombs and bullets burst around them; snatching laughs and love between amputations and penicillin…” Auction results and photos courtesy Heritage Auctions, Dallas, Texas.
