32¢ Folk Heroes, Set of Four Singles, Never Hinged.
"Four legendary characters from American folklore. Mighty Casey, the hero of Mudville's baseball team, was the main character in the well-known poem, "Casey at Bat." The strongest, toughest cowboy there ever was, Pecos Bill was said to be able to rope a railroad train and ride a cyclone. Paul Bunyan and his mighty blue ox, Babe, journeyed all over the United States, shaping the undeveloped country. According to certain tall tales, he single-handedly scooped out the Great Lakes and dug Puget Sound. Supposedly based on a real individual, John Henry was a steel driver working on the Big Bend Tunnel in West Virginia. Pitting himself against the steam drill, he battled for ten hours. Finally beating the machine, he collapsed and died."
