    Rub-A-Pencil Box Set (Saalfield, 1969). Issued by Saalfield in 1969, distribution on this Walter Lantz set was spotty at best -- which helps explain the scarcity of this item. Featuring a nice colorful cover illustration of Woody Woodpecker and other Lantz cartoon creations, all six books are present, including: Oswald the Rabbit, The Beary Family, Woody Woodpecker, Spook-A-Nanny (also featuring Woody), Andy Panda," and Chilly Willy. Each book is highlighted by a different vivid cover illustration. All are completely "unrubbed" and are about as close to Mint as you'll ever see. As a bonus, there is an extra copy of Oswald the Rabbit included! With only slight wear to the box, this is an exceptional example of an often-overlooked Lantz collectible. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
