A practitioner’s manual and definitive treatise
This book purports to be “the” book on Frisbee. (Quick, run over to the 700s and check your Frisbee collection!)
From my own faulty memory of the 1970s and early 80s, Frisbee started getting “serious” with the sporting aspects, including competitions and performance standards. Click here to read the Wikipedia article on the generic “flying disc”. Just about everyone had a Frisbee within reach when I was in high school and college. (My mother was appalled that during my college graduation, Frisbees were flying around during the ceremony.)
As a collection item, this one fails on condition. Although, considering the age of this paperback book, it looks like it was well used and loved. I doubt it would be a hot item for a modern collection in sports. Toy collectors and other nostalgia buffs over the age of 50 might find the info interesting, but I doubt it. For my fellow baby boomers out there, enjoy this commercial from 1966, bell bottoms and tube socks are optional.

Fabulous Frisbee (don’t miss the picture of the proper catching position!)
