    Rare 1937 R342 Goudey Baseball Thum-Movies Retail Store Sign. This is the first time Heritage has had the opportunity to present this piece to out bidders. Offered is a rare and very fragile retail store advertising sign promoting the R342 Goudey "Thum-Movies Baseball Series" from 1937. The flip book design allowed for the illusion of movement when the pages are "flipped" or viewed very quickly creating the "Sensational! Big Leaguers in Action." This series is scarce and promotional pieces are far, far more challenging to acquire. The offered 7-3/4" x 5-7/8" thin paper sign has crimping and a pair of staple holes. The set feature Mel Ott, Joe DiMaggio, Luke Appling, Bob Feller, P. Waner and Jimmy Foxx plus others. Technically Fair condition but presents much nicer.
