Lot Vintage ADS / ADVERTISING ~ THE U.S. NATIONAL GUARD Recruitment ~ WWII :
collected magazines all my life, mostly picking them up at estate
sales/tag sales. When they weren't in collectible condition, I removed
the ads before recycling what was left. I worked in advertising back in
the day, so have a special affinity for vintage ad art. Can't seem to
throw any of it away.
Anyway...I've got a few file cabinets full...and am now whittling down my collection. I thought the easiest way to do it was to put together lots of like items or brands.
Please note...I collected everything...so some magazines came out of basements, others out of attics, and some even out of cedar hope chests. Since purchase, everything's been neatly stored in a non-smoking home in a climate-controlled back bedroom.Still...once damage is done, it's done. so some pages may have:
- antique humidity damage which caused some color bleed from the reverse side
- chips - *PLEASE NOTE: The color ad is chipped all along the left side, so would need a matte which would cover right up to the print, though it's a great ad...and it would look nice framed in my ads may be missing the facing page
In general, the pages are in good vintage condition, neatly trimmed, and some may even be ready for framing, though I'm offering these more as a lot for collectors as I can't promise any particular piece would look perfect framed, and have so much that I can't go through them individually. Please zoom in on the photos to get a better idea as to what's included and condition. If you have a question about a specific ad, please message me. seems to divide lots pre- and post- 1950...but since my collection spans the 1930s to the early 1960s, I've clicked the earlier time period...as I have almost nothing listed which isn't at least 50 years old. The size is mostly 10 1/4" x 14" as the majority of full pages are from magazines like the old Life, Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, etc. If ads are clipped, like some in almost every lot, they are much smaller in size. If you purchase more than one lot from me, I will combine so shipping is only charged on the first lot.
All items will be shipped securely, in an archival sleeve, on an acid-free backing board.
Thanks for looking!
