What a trophy! Swirled butterscotch catalin Bakelite, with a golden bowling girl and wooden bowling pins. For sale here.
Vintage ad for Al Kopis’ Bowling Supplies, a “certified Brunswick service dealer,” found in a 1972 Center States Football League yearbook for the West Allis Spartans — back when men could (and should) be seen puffing a big fat cigar in their advertising materials.
Via World In Sport.
I don’t know about the rest of the stuff, but I sooo want that plastic bowling ball ornament / keepsake / gift certificate holder shown at the bottom of this 1962 ad. Puh-leeze, Santa?
(That Santa link is one of my favorite Christmas posts from the Kitschy Kitschy Coo archives; what’s yours?)
