the daily mirror action replay flick books

When l was a young whipper snapper we didn't have any computers or video machines, we had to contend ourselves with Daily Mirror Goal Action Replay football flick books, which came out in about 1972/73, and repeated famous goals when the pages were flicked through at a steady (but reasonably fast) rate.
Ah, those lovely innocent days of my youth.
I've just retried the George Best one and a couple of others, and they all work just the same as they did back in the day. Sod new formats, this was ingenious!!
Try goggling flick books nowadays, and l bet the results will make your eyes water.
