An old NY Times Op Ed piece dated May, 7 1987 titled “A Lesson in Lagniappe” explaining the essential purpose for why people collect advertising matches despite the recent bans on smoking.
“… matches are hard to improve on as the ultimate small souvenir – shimmering, place-dropping evidence that the bearer recently flew on Air Force One, dined at Lutece, visited Gracie Mansion or celebrated Jeffrey’s bar mitzvah. …. People want matches for striking, smoking or lighting, but most of all for bragging.”
