    Description

    The Lone Ranger and Tonto Wheaties Posters (General Mills, 1957). Posters (2) (25" X 75").
    In 1957, if you were a good boy (or girl) and ate all your Wheaties breakfast cereal, you carefully saved each boxtop until you finally got the required number, mailed them in, and sat down on the front steps and waited for the mailman. Soon, your choice of either Tonto (Jay Silverheels) or The Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore) would arrive in a near life-size poster and you proudly pinned it to your wall. This lot includes both posters, professionally linen-backed and ready to display. The Lone Ranger poster had touchup to the folds, and Tonto's poster had a bottom right corner bend and tear, all of which have been touched up with excellent results. Very Fine+ on Linen.
