If you grew up in the New York/New Jersey area and owned a television you probably remember these amazing commercials for “The Money Store” starring New York Yankees announcer and former shortstop Phil “Holy Cow” Rizzuto. Even after repeated viewings of the commercials, I really had no idea what a “Money Store” was growing up (I guess loans), but because of this ubiquitous ad campaign and Rizzuto’s dynamic charisma I still remember them today.
When I close my eyes I can still picture them on my little B&W TV on channel 11 WPIX during Star Trek, Honeymooners and Odd Couple commercial breaks.
