Kansas State Fair September 18-23 1949 Hutchinson Kansas Matchbook Sticker (MB449)

I have an ongoing love affair with Kansas.  This is a wonderful, dear old matchcover advertising the 1949 State Fair.  This fair, right after the end of the World War, benefitted from the end of sugar rationing.  Children returned to gobble up the free flowing sugar.  In 1949 the fair added an air landing strip, which, of course, was installed and used by more than 200 flying farmers.  (This was the year after the Cessna 170 plane was shown off at the pervious fair.)  Apparently the fair had several baudy elements, including a very popular entertainer named “Her sexcellency Sally Rand and a bevy of 16 scandilicious girls”.    After the show Sally would autograph booklets for the fans.  I don’t think the show was too risque, as Miss Sally was over 50 years old and wearing a bodysuit when she performed.

The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker.  All stickers are custom made.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith die-cut vinyl stickers are printed on glossy, premium, extra thick vinyl.  We then seal the image in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading or tearing.  We will only sell the absolute top end of any particular product on our site.  Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable and valuable as our magnet products.

Images used to make our stickers are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE:  This sticker is exactly 3.409  x 1.149 inches OR 8.658 x 2.917 cm.

It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.

*We require a minimum purchase of $10 for sticker orders.  We ship First Class US Mail for our customers domestic and international; for domestic orders the ship time is approximately 7 days.  We do not expedite shipping.  Cost for shipping, as well as tax, is calculated at checkout.
