Default use of chemical stimulants in the deadball era

Thanks for the compliments, everyone. It looked pretty cool in the auction, but it looks even better now that I actually have it.

As it uses coca leaves in the flavoring and the cocaine can't be
entirely removed from coca, today's Coke has cocaine in it. The US
government overseas the use the coca, the leaves go through a chemical
process before Coca Cola uses it and the amount in the drink is below trace.

Glen,

Thanks for the reply... Are the letters, arrows, player images, etc. at all indented in the paper -- meaning can you tell the paper was pushed in by whatever printed the image? I'm not sure how to better describe what I'm asking...

Nothing like that, at least none that I can detect with my eyes and fingertips. The texture is uniform across the whole piece, with nothing stamped/pressed/in relief on it -- same as an ordinary baseball card except that it's monochromatic.

To the best of my knowledge, this was originally an advertisement from a magazine which someone made into a cardboard display piece within the last 30 years. I do not think this was done to deceive but rather to make a nice display in the 1970's or early 1980's. All the ones I have seen of this piece have been as such, and I have seen the original ad in a magazine (might have been National Geographic) and it was much smaller which is why Lajoie looks really grainy in your piece after he was enlarged.

Do not take this opinion as gospel because I am not looking at the piece and so I can not make a 100% accurate opinion, but I have seen several of these over the years and they were all modern in their production.
