Description: 

This reproduction of the September 7th, 1940 Liberty magazine cover was an ode to Kansas City's booming economy. As the poster notes, major changes in Kansas City were afoot with a political "clean-up". In the background of the poster is the old Municipal Stadium where minor league Kansas City Blues played. The iconic overhangs tower above a packed stadium. In the central foreground, a larger-than-life woman dressed in a baseball uniform applies lipstick before stepping up to the plate to bat.
