Armour's Star Hams And Bacon


Five pointed star die cut Trade Cards. An Armour's Star Ham is in the center with an anthropomorphous pig in each point. Cutlines below the pigs read, "This little pig went to market."; "This little pig stayed home."; "This little pig had bread and butter."; "This little pig had none." and "This little pig cried wee wee all the way home." The back has a can of Pork and Beans in the center and features five good points about Armour's Pork and Beans. "You Don't Know Beans Until You've Tried Armour's."
