Early 1920s Ad Featuring the Chicago Cubs Team and Manager William Killefer.

Lot 330. Early 1920s Ad Featuring the Chicago Cubs Team and Manager William Killefer. Regarded as possibly the best fielding catcher in major league history, Killefer played for the Chicago Cubs from 1918-21 and managed the team for part of the 1921 season through 1925. He is featured in an advertisement, likely from a magazine, for the Bradley Big League Sweater. In the 1920s, many major league teams wore the sweaters, which were produced by the Bradley Knitting Co. of Delavan, WI. For Babe Ruth, the company made a special sweater that had a wool jersey lining and weighed six pounds. In the ad, Killefer tells readers that the Bradley product “is some sweater – good to look at and good to wear – just about all a sweater should be, in my opinion.” He and his players each are pictured wearing a Bradley sweater. With multiple creases and several scuffs, the 9.5” x 11.5” ad displays decently. It is matted and framed to 13.5” x 15.5”. The frame for this almost-100-year-old ad has a small chip at the top. Minimum Bid $25.
