Another auction item is this fine 1955 Miller High Life season schedule poster. The “on the air” they’re referring to is a good ol’ AM radio broadcast. Not T.V. and not the internet. And not on your phone, which in 1955, was a single fixture affixed to the wall, most likely in the kitchen (says the old man who serves as your Packerville, U.S.A. editor). Also note the locations of the preseason games, which were often held in non-N.F.L. cities to drum up interest in the league. See the auction post here.
