Buck Rogers vintage toy auction

buck rogers rocket ship plan

Over at CoolandCollected.com there’s an article that links to several bits of vintage Buck Rogers mayhem on auction at Hake’s – like the Cocomalt premium Buck Rogers Cut-Out Adventure Book, probably my favorite. That’s where this incredibly buildable rocket ship design drawing comes buck rogers cut-out charactersfrom, along with a bunch of cut-out characters and scenes. Oh, to be a kid again, twenty years before I was born!

Also not to be missed: the 1934 wind-up rocket ship, with loads of neat box art. To see the whole article, just go here.

My grandmother (born 1900) was a big Buck Rogers fan. She apparently used to get teased about reading the books, but went right ahead and enjoyed them anyway!

One of my grandmothers read all of Jules Verne when she was young, and said that she spent the rest of her life watching the books come true.
