Sir Hugh managed the BoSox in 1921 and 1922, was a team scout for the better part of the next three decades, and was officially on the coaching roster in 1932 and 1939. This heavy-card-stock advertising piece hails from the earlier of those two coaching stints. (Paul McCullough, of the featured comedy duo Clark & McCullough, committed suicide in 1936.) It measures 8-3/4" x 14" and has a VG appearance overall with a pinhole mark at top center. This is only the second surviving example that we're aware of.
