Winchester 5-Panel Advertising - 1923


The Winchester 5-Panel Advertising Piece was issued on January 11-17 and January 25-31, 1923. It is one of the very best Winchester 5-panel sets and is the actual 5-panel set used in the Winchester "RARITIES" book pp.133. The front side shows the only basketball action scene ever used in a Winchester piece. A game is in progress and one of the teams is Winchester, indicated with the famous red "W" on the player. In the background is an active gym scene with a man on the speed bag. One end panel shows 3 great pieces of Winchester basketball equipment. Each panel shows the recognizable red "WINCHESTER" lettering. The back side of the piece shows a very nice ice skating scene - although not nearly as exciting to me as the front of this great item. Overall, the item is in its original state - no restoration. Over 8 feet long and 4 feet tall in the frame. It is in excellent condition.

Rare Album Postcard Acquired - March 1, 2016

Recently, I came across a surprising find - the 1928 Cuban Aguilitas Album Redemption postcard. When I've seen these in the past, they have always been baseball related. This one is basketball themed and shows the same image as card #397, the HNOS Maristas. The seller of this item said he found it in Cuba three decades ago. It is a nice and une...
