These large (36" x 80") canvas-like banners were displayed on poles outside Union 76 Oil gas stations in the Los Angeles area during 1964 to promote a Dodgers portrait giveaway program. Portraits of various Dodgers measuring 8 1/2" x 11" were painted in pastels by the famed artist Nicholas Anthony Volpe, then distributed as promotions when a customer purchased at least eight gallons of gasoline. Each portrait distributed at the gas station shows a player in both uniform and formal attire, with biographical information and career stats (including their World Champion 1963 season) on the back. This particular banner features one of the greatest left handed pitchers in baseball history, Sandy Koufax. Most of these large promotion banners were discarded by the gas stations when the promotion ended, making these tremendous display pieces exceedingly rare. The poster is intact, however, there are noticeable stains on the bottom of the poster and along the right edge.
