Why order this NOS Vintage 1950's PF Flyers Mickey Mouse Club PF Time Red/White Paper Pennant Sign?

Perfect for shoe enthusiasts and Disney collectors alike, this PF Flyers sign was made to advertise one of the biggest shoes of the 20th century. Inventor Hyman Witman patented "Posture Foundation" arch support insoles with B.F. Goodrich in 1933, and the shoes quickly became popular among athletes. The military took notice as well, and shoes with the supports became standard issue for some outfits. The name was shortened to "PF" in 1937. In the 1940's, the insoles were added to moccasins and oxfords, and new lines were brought out for women and children. In 1958, PF Flyers became the first shoes endorsed by an athlete when the company signed a deal with NBA Hall of Famer Bob Cousy. PF Flyers also sponsored television shows, most notably the Mickey Mouse Club, which is featured in this sign, and Jonny Quest. Although PF Flyers accounted for a fifth of all of the canvas shoe sales in the 1960's, they declined in popularity as the industry changed in the early 1970's. Even so, their place as a part of Americana was already secured.

A Great Throwback Piece

This sign dates back to the 1950's, when it was made in Chicago, IL by Hood Footwear Products. Made of paper, this sign is classified as new old stock since it was supposed to be used, in this case as an advertisement, but never was. The sign was found in its original box in an old shoe store. The sign weighs about 2 oz and measures 15" x 8". A certificate of authenticity comes with it. The sign would fit beautifully in any shoe or Disney themed collection or as an addition to a rec room.
