Some rare treats for the Coca-Cola fan and collector…
Take a look at these vintage originals – coupons, boxes, programs and more – all from the ’50s and ’60s, when a bottle of Coke was just a dime.
Back then, it was common for brands to sponsor high school and college sports programs by producing generic flyers and inserts. These artistic “ads” featured stellar illustrations and typically great design, making them an awesome piece of Americana to put on display.
Some Coke programs were sport-specific. For example, an insert for basketball would feature illustrations of players in action, accompanied by a legend of common ref calls (like traveling or free throw counts).
At the movies, Coca-Cola would share advertising on popcorn bags and boxes, reminding folks that their treat goes “Good with Coca-Cola”.
