    1930's Moviescope Babe Ruth "Flip Books" Trio (3). In the cinema, stop-motion model animation was used to re-create the illusion of full motion. When put to paper, they are called "flip books" where one views the pages in quick succession bringing an "action" scene to life. Presented is a trio of these fun and very fragile collectibles featuring baseball legend Babe Ruth! What is the Babe doing in each scene... hitting a home run of course. These innovative novelties date to the 1930's or earlier. Included are: 1) Wheaties "Babe Ruth Shows You How to Hit a Home Run" (NM, cover crease); 2) Quaker Oats "Babe Ruth Hitting a Homer - Babe Ruth Fielding." Dual sided flip book. Cover has wear/creases/rusty staple, interior pages are Excellent; 3) Lion Brand Shirts "Babe Ruth In the "Home Run." Front/back covers have wear, interior pages are exceptional. A fascinating trio of Ruth collectibles that have survived in much nicer condition than one would expect.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
