Distributed up and down the East Coast during the 1971 baseball season, team photo sets were the incentive to patronize Arco gas stations. Here are (4) team sets of 8x10” color photos with their original mailing envelopes. Includes:
1971 Red Sox: Aparicio, K. Brett, B. Conigliaro, Culp, Griffin, Montgomery, Peters, Scott, Siebert, Smith, Tatum and Yastrzemski
1971 Yankees: Aker, Bahnsen, Baker, Cater, Clarke, Ellis, Michael, Munson, Murcer, Peterson, Stottlemyre and White
1971 Pirates: Alley, Blass, Clemente, Giusti, Hebner, Mazeroski, Moose, Oliver, Robertson, Sanguillen, Stargell and Walker
1971 Phillies: Bowa, Bunning, Freed, Harmon, Hisle, Hoerner, Johnson, McCarver, Money, Selma, Short, Taylor and Wise
Included, as well is a sizable point-of-sale display. Measuring approximately 42x86”, the sturdy canvas banner features a batter likeness and beckons: “FREE PHILLIES PICTURES one with eight or more gallons – a different player each week.” The item shows the effects of previous outdoor display, but presents nicely. Original wooden slats accompany.
