An extremely detailed die cut foldover image of a young girl with some baseball equipment used to advertise McLaughlin's XXXX Coffee (strong stuff!) from 1894. Considering the fragility of the medium and its intended use, this has survived in remarkable shape, with minimal wear and impressive color.  A young lad named George Kesler practiced signing his name at the bottom of the reverse's right side.
