Beautiful large-format advertising display featuring a Rockwell-esque print of an elderly Honus Wagner, signing a baseball for a young little leaguer.  The print features a painting entitled "A Great Day" that was created by famed pinup artist Bill Medcalf. Produced by Brown & Bigelow (which used the identical image on the reverse side of a deck of playing cards they produced), the piece features an advertising message from Denman Rubber Manufacturing Co in Warren, OH, and includes a month-by-month calendar.  The entire piece, which displays wonderfully, has been professionally matted and framed to a finished size of 21" x 37 1/4".  A gorgeous vintage display featuring a familiar work of art from a well-known pinup artist.
