Scarce advertising pieces feature fantastic 19th Century imagery of Detroit Legends and HoFers Dan Brouthers, Sam Thompson, Ned Hanlon, and Deacon White. Created for retailers in the late 1880s, this "baseball currency" was a fun way to reach consumers and advertise their business. Quite scarce today, these unique and highly detailed pieces are sought after by sports and currency collectors alike. Offered two pieces are identical aiding in display and both present very well. Both have a little paper loss at the upper left corners, otherwise they are very clean; a few typical creases noticed.
