For Sale: An 1894 Texas State Fair Keepsake
From eBay seller "celluloid"
On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the Texas Centennial Exposition at Fair Park, which opened on June 6, 1936, Friend of Unfair Park PeterK espied this one-of-a-kind keepsake up for grabs on eBay courtesy Minneapolis-based seller "celluloid": a bronze coin commemorating the 1894 Texas State Fair. That was but nine years after the opening of the Dallas State Fair and Exposition and a full decade before, as Willis Winters writes in his invaluable history, "the Texas State Fair was reorganized and renamed the State Fair of Texas."
A steal at $25.94, though there are four days of bidding left. Perfect for that looooong-discussed museum at Fair Park. Or as a poker card guard.
