I believe that's mini postcard shots bound together in a booklet.

I'm the highest bidder so far. :) So if I get it, I'll let you know what's in it.

Congrats on the win, Rick. I have the same flip book.

The Edge floaty pen is kinda cool ... I don't ever remember ever seeing those in Gurnee.

I remember seeing that plate in the shops at Gurnee and not buying it because it was too expensive. I have no idea how much it was selling for back then at its original price, but I doubt that it would have been only $3.00! I see the plate show up on eBay fairly regularly. It usually doesn't sell for a high price on there unless several MGA souvenir hunters just happen to all go after one at the same time and drive up the price. I finally got one from eBay several years ago. I don't remember how much I paid, but I got it for what I felt was a good price.

I should clarify, I was refering to the ebay auction at 3 bucks ($2.99) which was a steal. I am surprised that more people didn't bid. I have no idea what Mariotts sold them for.

This was a nice auction for a 1977 map and book which went for 22 bucks.

I did not bid as I already have both of these, but I was tempted in the interest of having an extra set.
