Ascot Beer Cup

Jerry Greer had a Raffle at the reunion and one of the absolute coolest things won was this Ascot Beer Cup and a large at that. Sure it has developed a little patina but I think the waxed paper cup is a real gem and would bring back many fond memories for us Ascot faithful. How many of these big beers we drank while watching our favorite sport, is impossible to recollect but for sure it was probably way too many. Like a lot of fans ,I scooped up dirt from the cushion on Turn 1 and display it proudly today in a mason jar in the man cave but I wasn't smart enough to save a genuine Ascot beer cup. Someone got real lucky and snagged this baby when they called their lucky number.
