poster looks very nice - I didn't see it in the "before" mode however. Could you post some info about the conservator? At Bill Mastro's suggestion some time in the early 90's I sent Chicago Graphic Restoration company a few things and they did a great job. At this time I am looking for someone else so would appreciate the "share"....

edited to add:

I actually found him once before but he neglected to get back to me. I assume by your comments you are more than happy with the work. Would I view the pricing as competitive? CGC was quite pricey. TX in advance for your reply.
friendly,
henry moses

Thanks! Tom owns The Art of Restoration and does most of the work himself. Ive always been very happy with his work. I have never dealt with any other restoration business before but feel that Tom is reasonable and fair. I went back and posted a before picture of the Pinch Hit. This was probably the easiest project he has done for me. He is a net54 member so hopefully he can chime in on that if inaccurate.

“Another” great advertising piece. Now let’s see the room with all these great items displayed!

I mentioned a piece I had, I think earlier in the thread, that I guess is some type of cloth/canvas that has water marks from being outside. Is that something they do or is it restoring paper pieces? Think it just needs to be cleaned, but I don’t want to mess it up since it’s not really that bad

That Pinch Hit Tobacco poster is top notch!! I remember seeing one a couple of years ago that I keep kicking myself for not bidding on on eBay.

I have never seen one of those Brooks banners, and it is incredible! How big is it? The top portion actually looks very similar to one a dealer has had at the National the past couple of years.

Default Brooks Robinson banner

Its rather large and Im not at home to measure, but an estimate would be about 3x5 or something in that range. I believe the one at the National is one of these banners that at some point in time the bottom portion was cut off or possibly had too much damage to the piece. I have seen one other Brooks banner, which I think was the same as mine, since I have been collecting. It likely corresponds to the other Crown advertising piece I pictured earlier in the thread (13). I know theres a pump display with Unitas pictured as well during the same time frame; unsure if a banner was ever produced.

Hi Henry. I'm glad you liked the work I did for Michael. I'm not sure how I dropped the ball and didn't get back to you. I apologize. I do know that I'm a much better value than the other company you mentioned. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I'd love to talk to you. Thanks

Yes Michael, the Pinch Hit was the easiest project I've done for you so far.

Tom,

Do you do fabric as well like I mentioned above? If not do you have any recommendations?

Hi Derek,

I was a tad off on the size. I got the banner out last night to take some pictures and its around 3 1/2 x 7 so a bit larger then I estimated.
