The types of ads found in old ballparks can be divided into the following categories, roughly in order from most to least common:
  • Alcohol (spirits and beer);
  • Tobacco products (cigars, chewing tobacco, cigarettes)
  • Newspapers
  • Men's toiletries (shaving creams, razor blades, soap, hair tonics, toothpaste, etc.)
  • Men's clothes/furnishings (tailors, haberdashers, hatters, shoemakers, etc.)
  • Soft drinks (became more prevalent after 1920) and other refreshments (chewing gum, ice cream, candy, etc.)
  • Automobiles (after about 1912) and automotive products (gasoline, tires, etc)
  • Entertainment (theaters, vaudeville houses, traveling shows)
  • Anything else that would potentially appeal to the largely male clientele at a baseball game.
There wasn't much national advertising prior to the 1920s. Among the brand leaders in advertising were:
  • Beer - Annheuser Busch, Schlitz
  • Tobacco - Bull Durham, Lucky Strike
  • Chewing gum - Wrigley's
  • Soft drinks - Coca-Cola, Moxie
  • Men's toiletries - Gem razor blades, Lifebuoy soap
  • Men's clothing - BVD
You can take a look at this site for more information

Call out for old advertising images

This is all good info. Hopefully it will aid Someone to find more images. I just don’t have the time. If you find them and post them here. I can add them during the second pass of these stadiums.

Just discovered a forum new to me, Baseball Fever, that has 10+ years of individual ballpark discussions. Detailed historical photos including advertising. You'll need to register to see the images.


There is a 400 page thread on the forum's project to render 1923 Yankee Stadium in astronomical detail including all of the banners.
