Arcade Card Machine Marquee Sign

Arcade cards were first created by the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago, IL, in 1901 and ended in 1981. The cards were 3 3/8″ x 5″ and featured promotional photos of movie stars, prize fighters, baseball players, and, as seen here, cowboy-western stars.

They were first printed in black & white and finally in color lithography.
