Fantastic Circa 1908 Reach Cather‚s Mitts Tin Litho Advertising Sign
One of rarest signs we have ever handled. This beautiful, 6x13" piece is 100% original with no restoration. The front has raised lettering and reads,"The Reach Patented Moulded Catchers Mitts. The Mitts with the Moulded Pockets. This particular style that the Catchers of the American and National League use. Made Exclusively By A.J. Reach Co. Philadelphia." Cardboard backing has a string for hanging and the message, "This sign is one of a series and cost us big money to have them made. They are for our mutual benefit, and if you will take the trouble to see that it is displayed in a good place we know that it will increase your sales of Reach Sporting Goods. If, for any reason you do not care to hang it up, kindly return it to us and we will put it to use elsewhere. A.J. Reach Company, Philadelphia, Pa." Fantastic coloring and could be classified as NRMT, but has small mounting hole in each of the four corners.
