Pair of attractive, 11" x 17" advertising posters promoting Hillerich & Bradsby Lousiville Slugger advertising signs, printed on thick paper stock.  Both signs remain in EX/MT+ condition with very light corner and edge wear, one exhibiting some light toning, featuring multiple Hall of Fame endorsers who were in their primes at the time of manufacture.  Collection includes: 1) 1956 "Home Run Records" sign featuring Mickey Mantle front-and-center, flanked by "floating heads" that include Yogi Berra, Duke Snider, Ernie Banks, Monte Irvin, and a number of others.  Irvin pictured in a Cubs cap dates the piece to 1956.  2) "Star Performance" sign, highlighted by a full-body image of Stan Musial, flanked by Hall of Famers Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Lou Boudreau, Ralph Kiner and Johnny Mize.  Two signs total.
