Paying homage to a time-tested Charm City institution, three since-departed franchises and a deceased Hall of Fame announcer, these four advertisements include:

Baltimore: City of Champions an 18x24 thick cardboard sign with florescent orange highlights, this early-1970s display is sub-titled “Flagtown, U.S.A.” and showcases an Oriole Bird logo and pennants of the since-departed Bullets, Clippers and Colts. The sign is affected by a series of creases but displays nicely with easel intact on reverse

WITH Radio “Chuck Thompson Show a 27x21 tin sign hawking the Hall of Fame broadcaster’s afternoon radio show

WITH Radio Orioles a 20-3/4 x 18-3/4” tin sign with “HEAR EVERY GAME!” proclamation

WITH Radio Bullets a 20-3/4 x 18-3/4” tin sign advertising Baltimore Bullets game broadcasts on the 1230 AM dial

The three tin signs show minor rust and expected effects of display
