This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#CC210 - Coca Cola Dry Server with a Pilot Drinking a Coke
Vintage 6 3/4" tall Coca Cola Dry Server with a picture of a pilot drinking a Coke. Says "Take off Refreshed". This is a very scarce one. We were happy to get some of them. These are paper sleeves that were dispensed from old Coke machines. The refrigeration in the old machines made the bottles sweat, so you put the bottle in one of these sleeves to keep them dry. Some people call them bottle bags, but the are really sleeves. Dated 1932. These are in exceptional condition. We just bought part of a huge collection of Coke items. These were part of the lot. The fellow that had this stuff is a friend who searched old bottling plants and hauled most of this stuff out many years ago.

#ZLC118 - Bronco Orange Crate Label
Vintage 10 3/4" wide Bronco Navel Orange crate label. We have not been able to get any of these for many years. This is the very nice old stone litho version circa 1930s. Fantastic image of a cowboy with a lasso on his bronco. Unused factory stock from the Redlands Foothill Groves in Redlands, CA. Excellent unused condition. This is one of the nicest labels out there. Great impact.

#ZLS092 - Dad's Root Beer Label
Vintage 3 1/2" wide 1960s Dad's Root Beer label. Has the No Deposit No Return advertising on it that became popular during that time period. Nice image as you can see in the picture.

#ZLT016 - Long Distance Tobacco Wrapper
Vintage Long Distance tobacco wrapper. Unused stock from the Scotten, Dillon Company, Detroit, Michigan. These are very early and beatiful stone lithos. Circa 1910. A large lot of old boxes and paper were found at the Scotten Dillon warehouse many years ago. We just picked up several different types from the guy who rescued them, and he let loose of some of the oldest ones that were found. They are very nice and in excellent condition. The entire label is 12" long and wrapped around a plug of tobacco. The image pictured showed up on the front and is about 4" wide.

#ZZA145 - Complete Set of 32 Different Blind Date for Men Pinup Arcade Cards
Complete set of 32 Exhibit Supply Blind Date for Men cards. Each one has a corny little story with 1940s humor many have what were considered risque poses for the time. The copyright date is 1941, which is the date the machines that dispensed these for a penny were originally made. The Exhibit Supply Company made them for the machines for years after.

We have a large lot of Exhibit Supply cards that we found in unopened bricks (you can see a picture of some of the bricks at the top of this department (Trading Card Shop). They are from a closed penny arcade. This is about the only way you would ever be able to find complete sets. The problem still is that there are more of some cards than others, so we can't assemble as many sets as you might think. These cards are uncommon. They are difficult to date because many of the machines were in production in the 1930s and 40s, but Exhibit Supply made cards for many of them all the way up to the early 1970s. The tale end stuff generally used lighter colored cardboard backing and printing on the bricks was stamped. The older ones have separate printed labels. So, we are using that info and the aging on the brick wrappers to estimate dates. The arcade must have bought the bricks of these during different time periods. Some are the lighter backs, but not the real light ones. We'll call it circa 1960.


#CH138  - Colonel Sanders Kentucky Fried Chicken French Fry Bag - Old One

Vintage unused KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) french fry bag. These are old ones. They have the old logo which pictures a serious colonel. As the years went on, the colonel smiled more. The cut and construction on this bag dates it to somewhere between the late 1950s and mid 1960s. They are in nice unused condition. A few boxes of these were found in an old building that housed a KFC a long time ago. We were fortunate enough to buy them all.

#CH384.1  - Charlie Chaplain Silent Movie Handbill - Fall of Babylon

OK guys. Something like this is uncommon. Vintage Charlie Chaplain items like this are nearly impossible to find. They came out of an old theatre in Brooklyn, NY. They are 11" tall thin paper handbills that they passed out in front of the theater to attact customers. It advertises D. W. Griffith's The Fall of Babylon which was made in 1919, so that is the time period these are from. It shows the second feature was Charlie Chaplan's comedy "Carman" which was made in 1917. This was the era of the silent movie and so it says "music throughout the entire show". What that means is that some guy played the organ while you watched the silent movies. This is a very good piece and we are proud to be able to offer it. These are the only examples we've ever seen. We bought them right and so are passing them on at an amazing price.

I (Don) have spent over 20 years roaming around digging out inventory for you guys. I work for you, and love doing it! Now, I need some help. My singer (Lola) and I (My stage name is ChordSlinger) are trying to complete a studio quality CD, but it is outrageously expensive. So, I got to thinking. If I could get some of you to donate a small amount (even $1), maybe we could gather the money to complete the CD. It is my dream. I appreciate you reading this. Shipping costs are not incurred on this item.  We are very close to finishing the album now.  Perhaps within the next 6 months!

#ZZA156 - Pacific Ocean Park 1¢ Arcade Hopalong Cassidy Bill Boyd Card

However, city planners, in an effort to renew the area, demolished buildings and closed streets all around the park so people couldn't find there way in.
