Description



You can readily find the cards. Packs, wrappers and even boxes can be had. But if you want one of these 1948 Topps Hocus Focus advertising posters, that buck stops here. In fact, it's going to take more than a few bucks to capture this potentially unique survivor. Sized at 13 x 6-3/4", this paper window poster retains plenty of display appeal. Designed with captivating graphics, this vintage brand promoter from Topps first ever trading card series, features a boy magician waving his magic wand at a collage of card photos, with football stars, boxers, wrestlers, actors, track and field athletes, and even a couple of dogs. Most of the reverse is coated with adhesive residue, which is variously visible through the front. Also, several small tears are noted, but the overall integrity of this piece is satisfying, and given that you may never encounter another example such as this, it is time for some serious consideration.
