tobacco tin? I think everyone knows what I mean by tobacco tin, so hopefully someone could help me track one down.

"FAVORITE is the chewing tobacco I use and recommend to you!"

I have a framed advertisment of Nellie, he has a chaw in his cheek and is pointing to a package of Favorite chewing tobacco.

Sad, really, with hindsight being what it is.

My mother has a tin of Favorite which Nellie gave her and autographed. (She did found his fan club.)

You'll get it away from her when you pry it out of her dead hands.

Instead, try getting a bag of those orange candy peanuts which he loved.

I got it at Sox Fest a couple of years ago along with a August 10, 1959 Sports Illustrated with Nellie and Little Louie on the cover..."Magic up the Middle." I had that framed and matted also.

Go to next years Sox Fest and you will find all sorts of cool stuff ..... heck there is even a pencil pull at the Windy City Sox Fans booth.:cool:

I was at this years Sox Fest the problem was I spent all my freetime standing in line for autographs or drinking some brews at the Atriaum Bar :)
