Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $237.00

Collection of six scarce "Bennett's Prune Juice" promotional photos featuring Baltimore Bullets players. Baltimore-based Recipe Foods, Inc., produced the juice and used members of the Bullets' professional basketball team to advertise its product regionally on 8 x 10-inch glossy photos. Each photo depicted a member of the team holding a glass of the juice with a small information box in the top left and a banner at the bottom heralding the drink as "Nature's great energy builder!" This group consists of the following: Walter Budko (signed in black marker, small tape remnants in each corner, otherwise Ex), Dick Mehen (small tear in right edge, otherwise Ex), Ken Murray (Ex on front, extra paper attached to reverse), Don Rehfeldt (Ex, extra paper attached to reverse), Kenny Sailors (Vg-Ex on front, extra paper attached to reverse), and Belus Smawley (Ex). Each photo displays moderate curling with the exception of Smawley. This is an attractive group of these rarely seen, regionally distributed food issues dating to the early years of basketball cards and the National Basketball Association. Total: 6 photos. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $237.00
