Can Anyone Identify This Lou Criger Item?
2 Attachment(s)
Can anyone offer any information on this item? 6" H x 4.5" W, thin paper. Obviously some sort of medical advert but what year, how many in a set and a value? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Contact me direct if interested, it is available.

I believe this is the back cover of a booklet or magazine. Not part of a series.

It is. It's part of an advertising pamphlet for pain pills. There's a complete one in the next LOTG auction, and I'm aware of another that resides in the collection of a board member. It's a really interesting piece, filled with testimonials from people for all the different things these pain pills cure - Criger is the only athlete (or celebrity of any kind, I believe) included in the pamphlet. The only image of Criger is the one pictured above, which is on the back cover.

Interesting. Thanks the info. Was hoping it was a rare "card" type premium!

People sell it all the time as a "card premium". I just recently sold the whole booklet on ebay and was really disappointed in what I got out of it. Let's just say it was hundreds of dollars less than what some people have sold the "card premium" for.

I think it is fascinating, but then again I am from Roanoke.
