Auction Gold: 1930 Packers-Bears Broadside

The current Heritage Auction has some amazing gems. We're going to be showcasing the best over the next week or so, starting with this marvelous 1930 broadside:

1930 Chicago Bears Vs. Green Bay Packers Broadside.  By consistently outplaying and outsmarting their opponent, the Green Bay Packers convincingly defeated Red Grange and his Chicago Bears, 7-0, in front of a City Stadium crowd on September 28, 1930. Offered here is an original broadside that promoted the big game, and it is one of only a few that survived the test of time. Affixed to a sturdy cardboard backing, and framed at 19.5x26", the ultra thin paper poster exhibits light paper loss and the proper folds throughout. An absolutely amazing artifact representing Curly Lambeau and the '30 championship Packers. Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
Remarkable. Really wish I could chase that one myself.
