Pictured is a small boy playing with all nine of the original cars on a track and prominently picturing the toys that are now worth a ton to collectors! Photo comes with a full paper caption on the back from Mattel and their public relations company that goes into great depth about the NEW toy and what would be hitting store shelves soon. An important piece of toy collecting history that is being offered here for the first time ever!
