To celebrate "National Wheaties Week," General Mills offered a sweepstakes for its myriad Breakfast of Champions eaters. The promotion was contingent on these four sluggers matching their 1955 home-run tally (162) in the upcoming 1956 season—in which case the total payout to contest winners would be over $36,000. Aside from slight surface rippling, a stain at lower left, and some routine vintage tape marks along the vertical center seam, condition of the 14x20 advertisement is EX overall with blue-Sharpie signatures of Triple Crown winner Mantle ("10"), Mays ("9") and Kaline ("8"). Framed to 19x25. Auction LOA from JSA.
