A quarter page advertisement for the improved Boston Garter. In 1912, the company inserted baseball cards one per box of twelve Boston Garter sock garters. Each large and brightly lithographed card showed a player in the locker room, sometimes in his underwear, showing off his sock garters. A large open window portrayed a game in progress in the background of the illustration. Boston Garter baseball cards are very rare and highly sought after.
