#TY221 - Nicely Illustrated Display Card with a Dozen Kid's Sunglasses
Vintage 14 1/2" tall display card with 12 pairs of kid's sunglasses. The cards are slightly rumpled from being folded in storage all those years. Found these in that warehouse in the Boston area. These are very nice and retail for pretty good money.
#TO017 - Sun-Ray Cigar Poster
Large vintage 17" wide paper poster for Sun-Ray Cigars. Fancy name on sunburst background. Unused stock found in the warehouse. Circa 1930s. Nice condition.
#SIGN002 - Sunkist Shamrock Valencias Sign
Vintage 9 1/2" tall circa 1930s cardboard store signs. These were distributed to groceries to use as price signs for Valencia oranges. Unused old stock from Northern Orange County. Nice image. Got these from a long time dealer who is retiring. He had found them many many years ago.
#SIGN054 - Blue-Tip Cigar Fan Hanger Sign
Vintage 6 1/4" wide cardboard sign advertising Blue-Tip Cigars. This was a fan hanger sign. Fan Hangers were tied to the string of store ceiling fans (before air conditioning) and slowly turned from the breeze of the fan, and so fan hanger signs are always two sided. The signs are identical on both sides. They were just found recently in the old factory and are the only examples I know of. All have some small typical paint flaking as you can see in the picture if you look close, but you won't find any better anywhere. Circa 1930s.
#TO041 - Be-Bop Novelty Cigarette Holder Display Card with 12 Holders
Vintage 9" tall heavy cardboard cigarette holder display. The pipe holders are 4 1/2" long. It says "Be-Bop Pipe Novelty CIgarette Holders" "All Cigarette Smokers". These are from the Be-Bop era around 1950 when smoking was very popular. You put a cigarette in the holder and smoked it vertically. These are unsold stock that I pulled out of the now defunct Pressner warehouse in New York many years ago. Excellent condition. Circa 1950.
#SP044 - Cardboard French Rum Bottle Topper
Vintage 3 14" tall cardboard topper that on the top of a bottle of Aux Futs De France Rum. These are colorful and gilded little signs that were used to make display bottles. You can't beat the price on these and they are really nice. Unused old stock in great condition.
#SIGN055 - Magic-Guide Remote Control Toy Sign
11” tall thick paper window sign. We had a load of 1950s plastic Magic Guide fighter jets a number of years ago. These were the signs that came with them. There never were many and they are extremely rare. They toys themselves go for big money these days. I wish I had them back.
#SIGN072 - Popsicle 3 in 1 Bar Poster
Vintage 16 3/4" wide paper sign that advertises the 3 in 1 bar. Says "Happy Time 3 in 1 bar, Save for swell gifts". These are marked copyright 1971 Popsicle Industries. Old unused plant stock in great condition. Shipped rolled.
#SIGN031 - Lord Baltimore Cigar Decal
Vintage 6 1/2" wide Lord Baltimore Cigar Decal. These are a peel and stick advertising decals that were made to go on a window or door of a country store. Nice shape. Unused old factory stock. Circa 1930s.
#SIGN074 - Huge Hobble Wobble Store Banner
Vintage 21 3/4" wide paper banner that was used in store to advertise the Hobble Wobble toy back in the 1950s. It was too big to fit on the scanner, so I just scanned part of it. Great graphic of a kid with a crewcut wobbling on the toy. This was the era of Hula Hoops. The Hobble Wobble was a plastic contraption that you balanced and wobbled around on. It never caught on like the hula hoop, but did have some national distribution. These are old stock signs that were still in the factory all of these years later and are in great condition. These have got that 50s look.
#SIGN035 - Florida Tangerines Sign with Tangerines in a Large Glass Bowl
Vintage color 14" wide cardboard store sign. Nice image with a glass bowl from the time period filled with tangerines. Also has a small image of the Florida Tangerine Special Train. Says "The Zipper-Skin Fruit". These are from the early 1950s which is when this style of artwork was used for Florida citrus products. The space to the right was where they wrote the prices. The reverse has writing on it too so the sign could be seen from either side. Reverse says "Florida Tangerines The Zipper-Skin Fruit". They came from the basement of a large store in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania called Trimble's. The store got signs with their deliveries and threw them in piles in the basement. One of our long time customers rescued these (thank's Bob) and a number of others. These are in excellent condition. Of note, magazine ads for Florida Oranges from the 1950s retail for $8 - $10. These should retail for substantially more. Nice unused condition.
#SIGN065 - Seven Seas Pipe Tobacco Sign
14” wide paper sign advertising Seven Seas pipe tobacco. They used to post these kinds of signs in store windows. These are unused old stock from the defunct Weisert Tobacco Co. in St. Louis, MO. They are in great unused condition and circa 1940s.
#SIGN053 - Paper Itch Me Not Store Sign
17" wide paper Itch Me Not sign. These are old factory stock from the closed company in northern Ohio. Nice shape. They are quite a bargain. Shipped rolled. Circa 1930s.
#SIGN075 - Page's Lawn Grass Seed
Vintage 21" wide paper banner that was used in store to advertise Page's Lawn Grass Seed back around the 1960s. The Page Seed Company has been around in New York since 1896 and is still thriving. These are old unused factory stock and are in great condition.

#SIGN059 - Goldfinks 1¢ Bubble Gum Vending Machine Sign
4 1/2” tall cardboard display sign that went in the front of a vending machine. They advertise Goldfinks 1¢ Gum. They are marked "Leaf Brands". These were a strange takeoff on James Bond and Rat Finks. They are from the 1960s and are in great shape. Unused old vending stock.

You get 3 for $4.50 (that's $1.50 each). Vintage color 14" wide cardboard store signs. The one shown pictures grapefruit and a glass. The others picture pink, red, and yellow grapefruits. All four are similar to the one pictured and mention that they are high in vitamin C. Writing on the back too. These are from around the mid 1950s. They came from the basement of a large store in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania called Trimble's. The store got signs with their deliveries and threw them in piles in the basement.
