Enormous canvas advertising banner for Crown Gold gasoline featuring Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas. The banner pictures Unitas striking a throwing pose as a member of the Baltimore Colts, below which is his printed endorsement: "I Fill Up With Crown Gold For Action!". Although no year is listed, the lettering along the base makes note that Unitas is "Most Valuable Pro-Football Player, Quarterback, NFL." Unitas was the NFL MVP on three separate occasions: 1959, 1964, and 1967; thereby conclusively dating the banner to to the 1960s. This is just the third example of this banner we have ever seen, and is probably one of the rarest Johnny Unitas/Baltimore Colts display pieces. The banner measures 78" x 44"--the original size was (44 x 83 inches). This was found in a barn--the sign was nailed both top and bottomto the wall under a long board which held other signs and had to be cut to remove. There is about 3" off the top which showed more of the football and about 2" from bottom, and would have had sewn piece both top and bottom where a rod would have been placed to hold it straight down. . Johnnywould have been displayed outdoors at a local Baltimore Crown Gold gas station, Amazingly it does not appear to have spent a lot of time outdoors--there are light stains at both top corners(see photos) and a small stain near left side(see photo)--it has a few tiny nails on the sides from the nails we pulled out.. It has fold lines as a movie poster would. and some creasing which could be ironed out. It retains near white color and Unitas uniformcolors. Overall good -very good condition.
