CHESTERFIELD CIGARETTES and THE GIANTS

In todays detroit free press Ernie Harwell says that back in the 1950s when he was broadcasting for the new york giants chesterfield cigarettes was a sponsor of the team.chesterfield gave ernie 2 lists. one list had players who smoked chesterfield and the other list was for non smokers.
Now if a player from the first list made a great play or something like that he would say for example,Yes Sal Maglie smokes chesterfields.Now if the player was from the second list he would say for example, Al Dark says chesterfield is his cigarette.
Now for years chesterfield was a sponsor for the giants, in the 1950s knickerbocker beer was also a giants sponsor.
