Extremely obscure premium, issued in 1963 by Fortune Shoes of Nashville. The 9" x 11 1/2" premium is printed on thin cardboard stock and features Hall of Fame running back Jim Taylor of the Green Bay Packers. No official checklist exists; but other premiums were issued yearly at least until 1966. Included with the premium is an original redemption advertisement for the Taylor print from SPORT magazine. The premium exhibits border wear, a light upper right corner crease and mild toning. The reverse is blank. The artwork was done by Ed Vebell; who in addition to being a noted illustrator (numerous sports works, Reader's Digest, and court illustrator during the Nuremberg War Trials) was a semifinalist in fencing during the 1952 Summer Olympics. Vebell passed away this February at the age of 96.
