R344 Rabbit Maranville ‘How To’ Overview
The 1936 R344 Rabbit Maranville ‘How To’ set is a series of instructional booklets with tips from the player about many different baseball-related topics. The front featured a cartoon image as well as the topic (i.e. How to Throw, How to Run Bases, etc.). The set was produced by National Chicle.
The insides of the booklets provided instruction on the topic in question and the back was a continuation of that. Backs also advertised that the booklets were distributed with the Batter Up set (R318). The backs also stated that there were many other Maranville booklets giving ‘inside secrets’ from Maranville in his 23 years of Major League baseball.
In all, there are 20 booklets in the set. Each booklet measures approximately 3″ wide x 3 3/4″ tall. The booklets had a total of four panels (front cover, two inside panels, back panel).
All printing in the booklet is done in a brownish/maroon color. Books were produced in 1936, the year after Maranville had retired as a player.
