  Ted's Root Beer Fake Advertising Sign

  Mickey Mantle Teresa Brewer "I Love Mickey" Pin  
 
Mickey Mantle Teresa Brewer I Love Mickey Pin The original vintage pin was issued with the Sheet music in 1956.

  The Jackie Robinson Story Movie Poster / Lobby Card  
 
The Jackie Robinson Story Movie Poster / Lobby Card This fake sign on the left is described as a "window display advertising", or "movie Lobby Card / Poster." The Fake posters are not the right size to be a Lobby card. The color flaws are to make the poster look vintage. The Fake Movie Posters measure 7 14" x 11". The original Poster pictured on the right measures 27" x 41" Lobby cards for this Movie were made horizontal, and measure 11" x 14".....Full Story
