This is an original 1951 window card style advertising poster for the 1950 Time magazine Man Of The Year issue which honored the “American Fighting Man”. The 1950 Man of the Year issue was the first issue published in 1951 in January 6 of that year and featured a Korean War era portrait of an American solider by Earnest Hamlin Baker titled The American Fighting Man. This is a window card style poster printed one side only on cardstock which would have been used in newsstands, drugs stores and other retailers that sold Time magazine to herald the arrival of the much anticipated annual Man of the Year issue.
This vintage original poster has bumped corners, a single pin hole at the top center, a short tear without loss of about a half inch on the left edge, a could small scuffs and moderate handling wear. Overall condition is very good.
