    Many years ago this sign was hawked by Mel Allen who was a New York Yankees announcer.

    He said words to the effect when your out (I assume he means in a bar) show the man the three ring sign and ask the man for Ballantine Beer !

    Old Commercial the three ring sign is in the first 30 or so seconds.
