Presented is a circa 1960 Windsor Supreme Canadian scoreboard, one designed to be displayed in taverns and scored with chalk, or an erasable marker, as a baseball game was playing on television. Windsor Canadian is a well-known brand of whiskey, one still widely distributed in North America. The pressed cardboard scoreboard measures 14x25". The advertised product, "Windsor Supreme Canadian," is printed in gold and white lettering set over a red background, on the viewer's upper left, and on the upper right, crossed baseball bats are pictured in front of a baseball, and on the ball is "A hit anytime." The "scoreboard" part of the poster is in a black background to facilitate the score being kept with white chalk, as on a blackboard. The scoreboard even has sections for listing the batteries and recording home runs. The offering even has a small cardboard holder to store scoring chalk or erasable markers. The offering has never been scored. The offering has a string that runs horizontally at the top to allow the scoreboard to hang from a wall. The four corners of the display show wear, with some small paper loss, and some creasing. The upper left portion, near the corner, shows scratching, paper loss, and some tears. In places along the margins, there is minor paper loss. Overall, the actual scoreboard portion of the display remains almost pristine, but the aforementioned imperfections exist, but not to the extent of seriously affecting the charming eye appeal of a nice, near-mid-century baseball display.
