Presented is a lot of (3) 1960s Pabst/Seagrams wall displays. The “vintage” feel of the displays bring the beholder back to the style of previous decades, depicting sports icons from years past. Ideal for decorating your “man cave” or office, this trio of solid offerings is all contained inside one inch thick wooden frames which slightly jut out over the borders of the items contained within. The frames present in EX condition, whereas the content within presents in average NM condition, with the exception of the “Invention of Basketball” display that has five holes that mostly do not detract from the image. The framed displays would make an excellent addition to any vintage baseball collection.
