This is an incredible find!  Both the stereographic viewer and the 50-card Golf Library are in wonderful original conditiion, all things considered.

After placing a card in the viewer, you look through it and adjust the distance the card is from your eyes in order to see a clear 3-D image of Jones or Sarazen or one of the other great golfers of the time.  The back of the cards are loaded with information about the player and what to notice in the image, such as their swing or positioning, etc. 

As can be seen in the images, One of the metal corners of the viewer has been bent, turned down so-to-speak, but the viewer still fits up to the face with room to spare.  The corner could be bent back to position if done properly

This item provides a magical view back in time, to catch a glimpse of these great players in 3-D. The set is complete with all 50 cards, which show the following golfers:

Bobby Jones - 1-10   (No introduction needed)
