The world home run king had scores of endorsements during his playing career. One of his long lasting relationships was with the Meiji Dairy Company. He was often featured in print ads and television commercials for the company. This poster promotes the full range of Meiji milk products. We have made a 1967 date estimate because the product, Meiji Peigen C was introduced that year (all other products shown were not new to the company in 1967). All 12 products promoted in the ad are numbered, with descriptions in the center section. It's a really cool looking poster.

On the back, Oh explains to children the production process from farm to consumer. As the Japanese text in the title states, "It is delicious!".
