To keep this interesting thread going, I thought I'd post one for Cubbies fans.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Chicago Cubs tobacco tins...
Here's my Chicago Cubs Chewing Tobacco tin advertising sign.

Wow Brent

I've never seen or heard of this piece before. Did it come from a major auction house?

Hey Mike, I bought it around 2010 from an elderly couple that pick in the county, and sell at an antique mall. I specifically asked about its provenance and was told that it was found just the day before I purchased it, hanging in an old barn. I've looked, but have never seen another. It was manufactured in St Thomas Ontario, and judging from the 15cent purchase price, I would guess it probably originates from early in the run of Chicago Cubs tobacco products issued by Rock City Tobacco in 1936. I also have a matching cardboard counter box that once held the plugs the sign advertises.

Dang...very nice...what's the dimensions?...the way they're making fakes these days...It's to the point now where I want to see some wear...If that was mint...or even just good condition it would make me worry...Congrats on a great find...even if it was 7 years ago...

Hey Carlton, how have you been? I'm not at home right now to measure, but if memory serves, its roughly 10" x 27 1/2".
