This is an extremely colorful ink blotter issued with the showing of the "Greatest Show on Earth" in 1952. Many posters, photos and other memorabilia were produced for the show making it a Great collectors Movie. The newly remodeled Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida shows four of the model Railroad cars used in the wreck scene. All but 5 of them are owned by Howard Tibbals who helped build the huge $5 million dollar Tibbals Learning Center in cooperation with the Florida State University at the Ringling Museums.
