[Broadside]: Help - Police - Murder. Bristol Tramps vs. New Britain Pros... Preliminary: N.B. Girl Pros vs Broad Brook Girls

New Britain, Connecticut: [George] Paris & Holst Ent. [1946].

Price: $600.00

Unbound. Photographically illustrated broadside on thin cardstock. Approximately 14" x 22". Modest age-toning at the extremities, else near fine. While we are unaware of the meaning of the headline "Help - Police - Murder," the poster advertises a basketball game between two fairly prominent semi-pro men's basketball teams. What is curious is that the poster is illustrated only with photographic portraits of six members of the New Britain Girl Pros, who were featured in the preliminary game. Little can be found relating to the women's teams involved other than they were likely member of the Connecticut Girls Basketball League, which we date back to at least 1901.
