Measuring approximately 16 3/4" x 10 3/4", thin paper outer wrapping from Post Sugar Crisp cereal featuring the Ted Williams endorsement of the Major League patches promotion.  Hand cut, with penciled-in markings and a notation on the reverse, print registration marks are visible at the two right corners.  The markings and erratic cut of the piece lead us to believe this is likely a printer or artist's proof of some kind; cut from its original press sheet.  The graphics are strong and vivid, the pencil markings light and faded with time.  An excellent companion for the full cereal box featured elsewhere in this auction.
