1909 Dogs Playing Baseball Print in Original Tobacco Advertising Frame

1909 Dogs Playing Baseball Print in Original Tobacco Advertising Frame

Done by artist C.M. Coolidge of "Dogs Playing Poker" fame, this fantastic offering is a 1909 "Dogs Playing Baseball" print in its original Red Seal tobacco frame. The frame features Jessum baseball figures of a bat, baseball, and five-finger glove, as well as a cigar and cigarette (a couple of pieces are missing to the applique). There is also a caption of "One to tie, two to win" on the bottom right corner of the frame and a Red Seal emblem on the top right. The scene, as its title would suggest, depicts dogs playing and watching a baseball game. The packed stadium shows a seemingly boisterous crowd, as most of the canine spectators are pictured with their mouths agape. The on-field competitors seem to have the markings of Border Collies, which would certainly jibe with the breed's athleticism. The framed print, measuring 15x18.25" is perfect for a baseball/tobacco cult collection, and was likely hung in a tobacconist. It was also signed by Coolidge, whose original 1894 "Poker Game" sold at auction for 658k in 2015.
