UP FOR SALE IS A LOT OF 6- BIGGIE MUNN SLIDE RULES. Very unusual & unique piece of Michigan State University football memorabilia associated with Biggie Munn, The Hall of Fame coach.Its called "The Biggie Munn Grid-Rule" & is tooled to function & appear as a slide rule. Made of heavy wood material, & painted with black lines & numbers, its center section slides to different "measurements" just as a slide rule. The direction of play is marked right & left with black arrows. Its marked in a similar fashion to the yards on a football field, with the number 50 being in the exact middle. An authority on Lufkin rules indicated that he believes this may have been a special order for Biggie's use & distribution & probably was produced in very limited quantity. It is highly unusual for Lufkin to manufacture a special piece such as this one.
Its fascinating to imagine what Biggie's purpose & usage was for this Grid-Rule. No directions were found with it. Obviously football related & probably manufactured in the late 1940's to early 1950's, during Munn's tenure as MSU's coach.Comes with original green pouch & cardboard box. In absolutely mint condition, with the.
Only defect being a snap button on the pouch that has pulled through so that it no longer snaps firmly, but this does not affect appearance. A very rare & interesting piece of MSU vintage football memorabilia!
