Shipping to United States: $4.99

“Lucille Ball, too, has graduated to Carling‘s, the light-hearted ale” is the theme of this 1951 Original Vintage Advertisement for Carling’s Red Cap Ale. The ad features legendary actress Lucille Ball holding a glass of Carling’s Ale with a graduation and red cap. There is a promo for her CBS radio series, “My Favorite Husband. This was also just prior to the legendary “I Love Lucy,“ show. Please see the scan.

A BONUS is another ad on the opposite side of the same page by Texaco. It has a baseball glove catching a fastball as spring baseball was getting underway and time for a Texaco Spring car checkup.

Ads are 10x14 and in color. The ads are in very good condition with nice color and detail. There is some edge aging.

REMEMBER: these are NOT 2 separate items but the front and back of a SINGLE page. They are both being listed because of possible multiple interests or topics.

Vintage advertisements and articles are becoming more and more collectible for their nostalgia look and unique eye-appeal. They also are suitable for framing and are becoming more scarce as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease.
