Issued by Aurora Plastics Corp. of West Hempstead, NY in the 1960’s were these model kits featuring the favorite characters of the kiddies. The line included monsters such as King Kong, Wolfman and Godzilla and superheroes such as Batman and Superman. Aurora also made a small line of sports legends and this offered item is the Babe Ruth model kit. The Long Island company seek to recreate the historic scene in 1927 at Yankee Stadium when Babe Ruth slammed his then-record 60th home run.
This one is just about as good as it gets, it's FACTORY SEALED and MINT in BOX. The 9" x 12-1/2" box boasts four sharp, square corners and a super tight factory cellophane wrap. The FINEST one we have encountered, looking like it was cherry-picked from a stack of model kits from a store shelf nearly 50 years ago.
