#TY868 - James M. Cole Circus Complimentary Ticket - Clown
Vintage 5 3/4" wide complimentary ticket to the James M. Cole Circus from the late 1950s. These are perforated paper tickets that were given away free if you signed a contract to let them put a sign in your yard or business window. Nice clown image. Unused excellent condition. We have some of the actual contracts available in another listing.

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.
