Colorful die-cut countertop advertising display offering Wilson Youth League baseball equipment, "endorsed by the major league's leading players."  Superimposed over the colorful sign are the portraits of Ted Williams (HOF), Johnny Antonelli, Harvey Kuenn, Gil Hodges, Billy Martin and Nellie Fox (HOF).  It is Martin's Cleveland Indians cap that helps us date the piece, as 1959 was his only season with the club.  The piece measures approximately 20" x 18" and exhibits some light wear, a few stains and some edge wear.  The delicate die cut areas around the piece are intact and appear in excellent condition, with no signs of restoration.  A thin, white line around the edges of the piece are solely related to Photoshop and are not present in the actual item.
