Zippo & Baseball
America’s lighter loves America’s pastime. Zippo has released countless baseball-themed lighter designs over the years. And since 1999, baseball fans have been able to find their favorite major league team featured on their favorite windproof lighter.
Zippo even released a baseball-themed advertisement, circa 1944, which was drawn by popular cartoon artist Otto Soglow. His distinctive style used few, if any, words to tell a story in a short strip and introduced the windproof lighter into the story in an unexpected and humorous way.
Zippo paid tribute to three of the most beloved baseball stadiums in the country in with the 2004 Major League Baseball Stadium Collection. Featuring Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago Cub’s Wrigley Field, and Yankee Stadium, the pride and joy of every New York Yankee’s fan, each collectible included the special lighter, which had a two piece emblem of the team logo in enamel and its home stadium below, and a special baseball trading card for the stadium with fun stats.
