    "HERE'S TO OLE JAKE". It was Russ Hodges, voice of the New York Giants, whose exuberance resounded over the airwaves in reporting the 'shot heard round the world.'  During his tenure with the Giants, 1956 to be precise, he was invited to endorse New York's local suds, Knickerbocker Beer.  Here portrayed with the aritficial "Father Knickerbocker" is Russ partaking the refreshment of the rival Jacob Ruppert's potable.  The medium is a stocky cardboard wall-mount.  It measures about 13" x 19" and though there's considerable damage at the white-bordered corners, this ad will frame all of the perfect imagery.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
