1968 Cleveland Indians Scorecard Part 3

Here's another ad from the 1968 Cleveland Indians scorecard for the Brilliant Electric Sign Company. (Click on it for a closer look.) They are, of course, the designer and manufacturer of the great Chief Wahoo sign that stood atop Gate D of the old Municipal Stadium for many years.
Kids love Chief Wahoo and my brothers and I were no exception. There was something exciting about seeing his huge grinning face, brimming with confidence and fun. It's a pity that the ol' Chief didn't make it over to the new stadium.
Where he is now? Here's a link to a nice article by Jim Vickers that explains the Chief's new home at the Western Reserve Historical Society. (Photo at right courtesy of the Western Reserve Historical Society.)
