Monte’s Coca Cola Ad


Monte 1954Last week began our discussion of the baseball sociology of food. Related to this is the marketing of certain foods and beverages to MLB fans. This practice goes back at least to the 1920s, and has included several baseball players.

Last week, John Thorn, MLB’s Historian, posted a Coca Cola ad featuring Monte Irvin. Pretty cool.
