This Fabulous Century Vol. V 1940-1950 Bookgammon™ Set

This Fabulous Century vintage, beautifully patriotic Bookgammon™ set is quarter bound in black leather with gold lettering on the spine, the rest in cloth with red and blue chevrons on a white background. One of the board’s sets triangles is a picture of a young couple dancing enthusiastically, what with the high-kicking and all. Superficially, it appears this young man is dating out of his league, good for him. The other set of triangles is a collage of comic strips, including Little Orphan Annie, Smilin’ Jack, and Dixie Dugan. I’m only familiar with Annie, as she was introduced to me in 1977 by way of a Broadway musical. More specifically, by way of a commercial for the musical. It wasn’t until the movie adaptation in 1982 that I encountered her adventures firsthand. It was by no means worth the wait. Bunch of baloney if you ask me.
