Well-preserved cardboard point-of-sale display sign, measuring 9 1/2" x 13" at its widest and tallest.  A die-cut image of a pitcher begins a strong baseball-themed piece with bold navy and yellow artwork.  Amazingly, all ten boxes of razor blades remain attached, each promising five blades for 10 cents!  The bottom-left corner credits A. W. Mendenhall of Chicago.  Thick, cardboard advertising display exhibits moderate creasing and edge wear with some visible surface abrasions.  An outstanding early baseball-themed advertising item.
