For several decades flip books were a way for kids to "make their own" movies without leaving the confines of their homes. The offered 1949 Topps Flip-O-Vision sheet promoted such a product which included a variety of entertainers and stars in acting sequences. The well-preserved 7-1/2 12-1/4" ephemeron displays mostly sharp corners and edges along with normal compacting folds and bright surface imagery of luminaries such as Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and the Marx Brothers. Included is an ordering slip addressed to Topps Executive Sy Berger confirming that 25,000 of such sheets are in stock as of 4/13/49. Neat piece of trading card history. Embossed COA from Topps Vault.
