Default newspaper search

Searched on GenealogyBank in PA and NJ for ads from 1952-56 and didn't get any hits at all using the search "mascot dog food." I expanded my search for the whole country, and got this tantalizing piece of info (photo) which came from the April 27, 1954 Evening Star out of Washington, D.C. in "The Baseball Beat" column by Burton Hawkins.

The text reads,
"Bucky Harris is a business associate of Al Rosen, Ed Mathews, Robin Roberts, Yogi Berra, Ed Lopat, Monte Irvin and Specs Toporcer. Their pictures appear on cans of Mascot dog food and they get a slice of the sales."

That's it! Sure would be great if those guys were on the remaining cards in the set!

Cool find, I would love to have one of the Ed Mathews ones in my collection.

Jason, Bucky Harris was the manager of the Washington Senators in 1954. This was the last year of his third managerial go-round with the Senators, as follows:
1924-1928 (as player manager, he won the W.S. in his first year)
1935-1942
1950-1954
