Champion is an American brand of spark plug which was founded by Robert A. Stranahan and Frank D. Stranahan in 1908 in Boston and then moved to Toledo, Ohio in 1910 to be close to the Willys-Overland Auto Company. In 1931, Champion introduced its first suppressor-type spark plugs. They used a carbon-based resistor to reduce the effects of ignition noise on radio waves. In 1989, Champion was purchased by Cooper Industries and is now a wholly owned brand of Federal-Mogul Corporation.
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that we have never previously auctioned this poster. We are guessing it is from the 1950s, but that is only a guess. We previously auctioned an English language poster from this company that was much larger, and we thought that was from the 1930s. If anyone knows more about this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had some faint creases and scuffs scattered throughout, with a line of scuff marks in the upper left extending into the spark plug. It had some tears around the edges, with some tiny paper loss in parts of the borders. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
