This classic ad is a great visual from the good old days of the NFL. Two things make it great, the old school glass Gatorade bottle and the old school team pennants on the bottle. It is hard to remember when Gatorade was packaged this way, in glass bottles with a pressure sealed metal lid. The Gatorade Brand logo and packaging look featured here brings back so many memories of downing this tart treat during little league games as a kid. This classic ad even pre-dates the NFL helmet lids that came out a few years later in the early 1970's. The image is a great way to travel back in time to when things were a bit less complicated than they are today. This is a truly great old school ad.
I'll have many more great images just like this as I make my way through some of these old magazines. Until then, enjoy!
