    1962 "TIPS FROM THE STARS". In 1962 Mars Candy crafted a promotion via phonograph records. These were 33 1/3 rpm made on 7" discs, and titled "Baseball Tips From the Stars." There are three different in this collection and, based on notices on the reverse of their dust jackets, it seems that this constitutes the complete set. The records are vinyl and appear unused. (It’s not too late to learn the spitball from Drysdale.) Evidently, Lou Boudreau moderates the narrative in this series. Specifically, #1, "How to Bat," draws on the talents of Musial, Banks, Snider and Boyer. #2 tells us "How to Pitch," courtesy of Spahn, Podres, Joey Jay and Drysdale. And #3, "How to Field," provides worthy281 information from Mays, Roseboro, Hodges and Hoak. Of course, the central consideration of this group is the condition of the paper dust jackets. Uniformly, they are excellent with no tears -- not even at the very sensitive edges. On each, a small blemish appears in the lower left quadrant which is obviously from a retail price sticker. But these are rare, and will certainly provide a handsome display.
