Default Vintage Detroit Tigers Poster

Just picked up a few Detroit Tiger items and was wondering if anybody has seen this cardboard poster before. The poster is cardboard and measures 21 inches tall and 17 inches wide. I figure it was produced in the 1960s but could be wrong. Any info you have would be appreciated.Thanks.

I had never seen this poster before. It is well done but generic and could have been a prototype for an ad that was never used. The fact that there isn't any print or liscensing info probably meant it was never put into production. Still a nice piece. Late 1960's would be a good guess as to the date.

Thanks Adam as that is what I was thinking. It is to bad about Bill Freehans health as it sure would look sweet signed in silver by him. Take care.

Here it is, bought this out of a bar after 1984 season. Looks like you have a pre-production copy of the poster.
