Small bit of Topps advertising “hidden” on 1953 card

I was just looking at this Clem Labine card from the 1953 Topps set, which is perhaps one of the nicest sets ever produced.

I’ve probably looked at this card a hundred times. But today I saw something that I had missed every other time.

Look over Labine’s right shoulder. Look at the advertising panel on the wall behind him. Although we can’t see the entire panel, it would appear that this is an advertisement for Topps Gum. I love “hidden” items like this.
