1964 Atlantic City L.B.J. Democratic National Convention Souvenir Collectible Oversized Matchbook The Shelburne Hotel


Here is a very interesting, collectible piece - A JUMBO MATCHBOOK from a former Atlantic City, N.J. hotel, The Shelburne. It is from 1964.

The Shelburne had been a popular convention center, and matchbooks like this were well circulated at the time. I've located a couple of similar ones online - the main difference being the name of the 'convention goers' on the WELCOME section on front.

The one I'm offering here references **L.B.J. 'Sixty-Four** under the WELCOME section of the MATCHBOOK. The Democratic National Convention took place at Boardwalk Hall (Convention Hall) from August 24 - 27, 1964. Lyndon B. Johnson and Hubert H. Humphrey were the Presidential and Vice Presidential Nominees.

SIZE: 4 1/4" Closed, 7 7/8" Open and 3 3/8" Wide

CONDITION: Used item, empty - no matches left. Cover has some wear to edges, with 1/8" piece peeled up (but not torn) from front cover. Back bottom right cover has a 1" x 1/2" section that has sticker damage. SEE PHOTOS.
