Lost Advertisements–“The Man Who Led the National League”

18 Oct


A  Coca-Cola advertisement that appeared before the 1910 season featuring Chicago Cubs first baseman/manager Frank Chance:

“The man who lead the National League –first basemen, with a percentage of .994.”

In 1909 Chance committed six errors, with 947 total chances in 92 games.

“You may use my name as one of your many customers who have derived benefits from drinking Coca-Cola.”
