The bobbin head doll has an NFL shield decal on the top of the base between the shoes, a Colts decal on the chest and a Baltimore decal on the front of the base. The metal faceguard is present and attached and overall the piece shows decent gloss and bold colors. The helmet has several cracks and chips mostly on the rear and the jersey shows moderate wear.
Both of the included Kail pieces appear to be MIJ pieces, the 10” bank includes the coin stopper on the bottom, however the bottom is without a manufacturer’s sticker. Both are very appealing and are marked “FAK, Fred A. Kail, Jr” on the back of the base along with a copyright symbol. The MIJ sticker on the bottom of the 5” mini piece is printed as “Made in Japan, Imported, Santa Claus Programs”.
The (2) ashtrays listed above were most likely produced in 1959 to commemorate the Colts 1958 NFL Championship 23-17 win over the New York Giants. Research on the ceramic ashtray revealed several examples of the Baltimore Sun version offered recently, however no examples of the included Baltimore News-Post version were discovered.
