21" x 22" cardboard advertising sign featuring a woman wearing a baseball-themed outfit (check out the baseball-shaped hat), loaded up with cigarettes - pack of Chesterfields in her pocket, cigarette between her fingers, another pack in her right hand.  Advertising copy reads "At all the games it's Chesterfield."  

The sign is in need of restoration, with heavy creasing and paper loss.  Tack holes are visible at all four corners.  Despite the wear, the sign is attractive, a seldom-seen display piece that manages to effectively imply a baseball tie without a direct player endorsement.
