The only thing rarer than this actual advertising poster pitching Armour Star Frank trading coins at the old Houston Buffs games is a poster with an ACTUAL COIN attached! This promotional slick hung at Busch Stadium (aka Buffalo Stadium) and features pictures of Bob Boyd and Hal Smith, as well as a real coin of Curt Simmons. There are some repaired tears, paper loss and tape stains where it was hung, but can be made near perfect in appearance with some restoration. Comes from the personal collection of Hal R. Smith, who is pictured on the poster, and consigned by his family.
