More Fine Toys from
Mr. Ken McGee

Mr. Ken McGee does sell toys, but his specialty area is in 
automobile (car) ephemera (paper collectibles).
He collects and sells all kinds of car manuals and other items from bygone era cars. 
The example below is from a 1912 Jackson car company specification booklet.
If you visit his store, you may become more interested in this section of his ebay store, that his exceptional toys!
