    Description

    1967-69 Post Cereal Hockey Flip Books and Marbles Collection. Offered is a collection of 19 extremely rare 1967-68 Post Cereal Flip Books, each 2-5/8" x 1-3/16" paper book features one player from the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadians. Interior scenes are taken from the 1966 Stanley Cup. The production figure of 500,000 seems high but the very fragile binding very easily fell apart quickly resulting in loose pages that were easily discarded. Their extreme lack of availability in the current market suggests most were in fact tossed by away likely parents cleaning up messy rooms. The collection includes the complete books: #'s 1 Worsley and 7 Beliveau (3). Incomplete books of #'s 4 Tremblay, 5 Richard/Mahovlich, 6 Keon (2) and 7 Beliveau, 10 and 12. Eight more books are included by are incomplete plus a few loose cover pages. All generally EX condition. To add to this already scarce collection are 11 just as scarce 1968-69 Post Hockey Marbles - Nine intact and NM marbles including Backstrom, Cournoyer, Ellis, Gamble, Laperriere, Oliver, Pulford, Ullman and Worsley. Second examples of Cournoyer and Ellis are included but cracked in halves.
