    After some 300 plus posts....AM I THE ONLY ONE COLLECTING THIS CRA.....er....STUFF?!?!?!?!?
    Lets see what YOU OWN and have collected!!!!!

    Here is a rehash of the beginning....
    "Ok, a LOT of great threads have been broken with lost links and other issues. This is my modest attempt to set up a thread dedicated to STETSON and its paper world of advertising and support in the golden era (roughly 1920 to 1960).
    Through this thread I will post some of my collection as best as I can. I do hope others will come in with their fun Stetson stuff....,..
    All the Best,
    M"

    And remember this is for Stuff YOU OWN, lets keep it troll and internet free....
    Thanks!!!!!! Now LETS SEE YOUR STUFF!!!!!!!!!;)
