Gilliam Pitches RC Cola

Here is a unique advertising tear sheet featuring a relaxed and debonaire Jim Gilliam found on eBay. He looks well rested with a bottle of RC Cola. He says, "RC is the cola I drink because RC taste so good." I don't doubt him. RC is one of my favorites, also. This sheet was created in 1955, so I wonder if he was hired after his World Series saving catch. Certainly, it made him a more recognizable player to fans. Anyway, it is a great collectible and may be one of a kind. How many of these could possibly exist?
