Default Bull Durham

I enjoy postcards and photos that pictures the figural Bull Durham sign that was present at so many minor league ballparks around the country in the aughts and teens.

Here are a few of mine, including one from Ottumwa in 1910, which relates and refers directly to the player pictured winning $50 for being the first player of the season to hit the sign. A case of Bull Durham tobacco was another prize given to players who hit the sign at other ballparks.

The third card pictures the Northwestern League Portland Colts at Yesler Way (Dugdale I) Park in Seattle on "Augie Moran Day", September 22, 1912. The Portland players, in street clothes, are identified by name at the top of Rainier Brewing "Bock Beer" signs, while umpire Moran sits with garlands of flowers and rotten fruit and vegetables at his feet, and an "I Am Blind" placard in his lap. Gotta love it!

Anyone have any to share?

I agree it's a neat looking sign. I wonder if any of these have survived?
