Dixie Cup Picturebook of Stars: ROY, DALE & GABBY

From the collection of Mike Britt, who has damn near everything - and then some, comes these very cool Dixie Cup premiums. (That's him at right, as depicted by Mr. R. Crumb back in 1958.) Kids who saved up 12 Dixie Cup lids could send them in for one of these 8x10" photo sheets. Every year between 1930 and 1954 (I think), there were 24 different stars offered, including cardboard covers, so they could be assembled into books. Roy and Dale are from 1946, and Gabby from 1947. Thanks Mike!
