The "Hot Iron" League...

Today's post features an item that isn't exactly a card, but fits the vintage topic well:

This blank-backed piece of fabric was issued in 1961by a company called Chemstrand and was intended to be ironed on to a shirt, pants, jacket or other item, with the loving care that only Mom can give. It came along with the purchase of a new shirt and came in a package that had instructions for returning it in exchange for a different star.

This page about Yogi Berra has some ads and a scan of the package. I could simply gab the scans and show them here, but Mark (the guy who set up the page there) is a hobby friend and I'd rather send him some traffic.
