Rare Vintage Baseball Scoreboard G & W Five Star Whiskey Advertising Sign For your consideration is this 1930's era baseball scoreboard measuring 34 x 13.5 inches. Mode of fiberboard and intended to be filled in as the game progressed. Someone would listen to the radio broadcast and update the scoreboard each inning. This board was provided by G&W Whiskey, a Toronto based distillery founded in 1831 and was notorious during the prohibition era in the United States for selling to men who would smuggle it into the US. This sign was purchased at a New York estate about a 3 hour drive from Toronto which contained many items from a speakeasy, so it is possible that's where this scoreboard was intended to be used. Fiberboard scoreboards like this one are quite rare because they were intended for one-time use, then thrown away. This one was never used and somehow survived for over 75 years. This will make a great addition to any collection or display it in your home or business. The scoreboard will be carefully packed for safe delivery. We routinely ship throughout the US and Canada.
