Apple-Touch-IconAPicked up this cool Electric Bitters trade card on ebay from Dave Cheadle with Dave’s Great Cards. Dave also had the Electric Bitters “Three Little Pigs” (read: Electric Bitters and the Three Little Pigs) card. Just love these advertising pieces that show so much information about the brand. He we have the name, logo, city, products, building, interior departments and other historical information. All illustrated! Dave’s write-up is as follows:
