    Black and Brown Stamp Albums (2) Promoting Black-Owned Businesses.
    Each containing 48 pages; 6" x 5"
    Oakland; circa 1969

    The first album has all but 2 pages filled with 1,150 stamps featuring superstar James Brown. Ownership information has been engrossed on the last page. The second album is largely unused and contains 6 stamps on the first page.

    The Black and Brown Trading Stamp Corporation was founded by former pro football player Art Powell of the Oakland Raiders. Its goal was to increase patronage to black owned businesses in downtown Oakland, and promote pride.

    Condition: The filled album has heavy wear and some soiling, dampstaining, and creasing to the covers. Interior pages are clean. Second album is largely unused and in near pristine condition.
