I vote for a 2017 fantasy repro ad. I don't recall packs coming in what looks from the picture like a little box, similar to the '86 Donruss extended rookies.

I got a scan of this from John Moran several years ago. He may know the origin.

I can't link it yet as the catalog is still in preview mode but lot 1216 in the new REA auction has a copy of the advert, looks like five known.

It looks to me like an image of a waxpack, but I guess it could be a box, as well. However, I was under the impression that the high numbers only came in five cent packs, whereas the ad pack has no price and states "picture card." So, maybe that argues more for a recent repro than a genuine '52 advert.

Anything's possible these days,but based upon who sent me the scan of one originally and the REA listing, I can't see how it's fake. Topps used subway and bus ads in NYC in this era as part of their marketing campaigns and similar ads for other products are known.

It depicts a pack, just a very clunky one. I agree there were no penny pack high number (blue and red) wrappers so it's really just artistic license I guess. I wonder if the penny packs for the highs were just the regular red and green ones?

It reads it is a "Extremely rare 1952 Topps advertising poster with Jackie Robinson and Mickey Mantle"

I was hoping I could copy and paste the link/pg but it just takes me back to the start.

Looks legit to me, and I would assume it is if it is up for auction at REA.
(unbelievable eye candy in that catalog!!)
