    Maypo had some great ads back in the sixties. "Even Carl Yastrzemski eats it," I remember the camel in one ad (I think it was a camel) saying.

    I'll try to find it somewhere.

        That's an interesting and curious PSA. Reminds me of the Isaiah Thomas electrical wires PSA they ran in Detroit for over a decade which I can't seem to be able to find and are not baseball-related, anyway.

          --I remember those old spots on blasting caps from when I was a kid. Was there really a problem with people leaving explosives laying around where kids could get into them?

              I remember that one!! it was a classic. To answer the question on that McGwire billboard, no, it wasn't the shoes. It was the juice.
