Lost Advertisements–John Evers, Gillette

19 Apr



1908 Gillette advertisement featuring Chicago Cubs second baseman, Johnny Evers.

“Some people forget to touch second, but the Gillette touches every whisker every time out.” John J. Evers, Chicago Cubs.

“In baseball as in business, a man wins out by self-reliance, by economy of time and effort.  The men whose time is worth most shave themselves, in three minutes, the GILLETTE.”
