Offered is a 1940s Chesterfield Cigarettes advertisement featuring the image of Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Whit Wyatt. The athlete's likeness comprises the backdrop of the 20-7/8" x 21-7/8" cardboard ad, and the caption at the center of the piece reads, "At All The Games It's Chesterfield." Handling wear is evident mostly in the form of regionalized foxing, a separation at the lower left corner and waviness, but these age-induced defects are largely subdued by the lamination. The sign's bright and colorful graphics prevail, and the sixty-year-old keepsake presents apparent VG/EX condition.
