#CIR009 - Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus Ad Proof Sheet for Newspaper Placement
Vintage 9" tall ad proof sheet for the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. The guy who ran ahead of the circus would distribute these to local newspapers. The newspapers used them as proof sheets to print the ad from. Clyde Beatty was a lion tamer who became so famous that he had his own syndicated radio series and appeared in 11 movies. He had his own circus which merged with the Cole Circus in 1956. These are from the late 1950s and the paper is a little brittle, but still in good shape.

These came from a fellow whose job it was to run ahead of the circus to prime the town they were going to. He would put up signs in yards in exchange for tickets. Give tickets to the local stores to sell, and take proofs to the local newspapers. He did this from about 1958 till 1962 for several circuses. This paper and a lot of other stuff we bought came from leftovers in his garage. The Cole Circus was one of the majors. It was equal to Ringling Brothers in the 1930s. When TV came around in the 1950s and 60s, many of these circuses had trouble. People got glued to the TV. The New Cole Brothers Circus was formed in the 1980s and it is still around today.

#ZZA135 - Complete Card Set of 12 Different Exhibit Supply Palmistry for Men Cards
You get the complete set of 12 for for $4 (that's only 33¢ each). These are cards that were dispensed at arcades and amusement parks in the Exhibit Supply Palmistry machines. They are marked Exhibit Supply and picture a palmistry hand. They are about 3 1/2" wide and in unused condition. Complete sets in this condition are very hard to find. There was a set for men and one for women. They tell your fortune. I am looking at one that says "Your hand says that you have a manly and courageous nature, and active mind and much tact...... You will probably marry early and enjoy a happily wedded life. These were found in original bundles with exhibit supply packaging in storage at an old amusement park up in the northeast. Based on the packaging, I would say these are from around the 1950s.
