Description

While it is unknown how the journeyman Bobo Newsom wound up in Baltimore as a television announcer and spokesman, the eccentric twirler was still embraced by “Charm City” faithful during his brief tenure of the club. The curator of the “Knothole Club” appears quite jovial on the offered 1955 Esskay Meats complete box. The 7x8 keepsake has been well handled over the decades with multiple creases, fold stressing, color fading along the bottom edge and wrinkling to three of the tabs. Moderate cardboard bowing along with extensive hot dog grease markings are noticeable on the reverse. Despite the relatively weathered condition, Newsom is perpetually among the most sought after singles from both the 1954 and 1955 Esskay Meats issues. Which begs the question, how many Newsom examples could have possibly survived in uncut form?
