Reese Likes Wheaties and Now, So Do I

I'm a sucker for a good ad. Aren't you? Throw in a little splash of color, and maybe a nicely drawn cartoon to put a smile on my face. Heck, have one of my favorite stars endorse it and I'll melt in your arms. I am, after all, a capitalist dream.

To celebrate this one indisputable fact I bring you this vintage 1950 Wheaties magazine advertising featuring Brooklyn Dodger Pee Wee Reese.
"Wheaties, with milk or cream and fruit, is my favorite training dish. It's easy to digest, nourishing- and loaded with swell flavor.I'd recommend Wheaties to anyone."
I'm sold, where's a bowl. I'm hungry.
