THE WONDER YEARS
Kids do not live by bread alone.

The good folks at Continental Baking Co., in addition to teaching all of America to love its Wonder Bread, produced the above Army-Navy Insignia Guide, which educated youngsters about rank in the armed forces. All you had to do was spin the wheel, and two ranks would appear in the chevron-shaped cut-outs, along with their corresponding insignias on the two warriors’ uniforms. This particular Insignia Guide doesn’t line up perfectly, but you can still see how it functions by comparing the two scans. Continental Baking also produced a guide to Army-Navy service ribbons, a guide to enemy aircraft (for bombings of the American mainland that never came), and other tchotchkes related to World War II. Such items are all collectible now, of course, selling at auction for a pretty penny. Oh, the Wonder of it all. Click here to see a similar gadget we posted way back in 2009.

1919—Ruth Goes to Yankees
Boston Red Sox pitching star Babe Ruth is sold to the New York Yankees by owner Harry Frazee. After moving to the Yankees, Ruth's transition from a pitcher to a power-hitting outfielder becomes complete. In his fifteen year Yankee career, consisting of over 2,000 games, Ruth rewrites the record books in terms of his hitting achievements, while making only five widely-scattered token appearances on the mound, winning all of them.
