Description

From time to time when the tough Rocky Marciano Champ Lighter stand-up display surfaces, it is usually incomplete and with seemingly mangled edges. Exponentially tougher to find in any condition, however, is the seldom seen Joe DiMaggio counterpart from the Champ Lighter series. Presented is likely the finest example of the issue to surface in recent years. The 9x12 advertisement vibrantly depicting “Joltin’ Joe” features a facsimiled signature and, remarkably, all six of the original Champ Lighters in their respective nooks, each unused and in upper grade condition. The original easel backing remains complete, displaying just a light fold, and the edges of the advertisement display minimal wear for the issue. Those interested should not hesitate, as it could be a very long time before an equal one of these surfaces.
