    NEW DEVELOPMENTS at DELAWARE PARK in 1954. (1) In TELEVISION WORK, (2) In NEWS PHOTO EXPANSION, (3) In FILM PATROL TECHNIQUE. 18 typescript leaves with text on one side only, plus FIVE ORIGINAL 8X10 B&W PHOTOGRAPHS, pages and photos 2 hole punched at their left margin, bound in a stiff folder with metal bracket, typed title label on front cover. Report by this THOROUGHBRED HORSE RACING TRACK on its new, and at the time novel, plan to film races at the Park for promotional and news purposes, as well as on the expansion of its still photography capabilities. The report goes into detail as to how the Track Organization intends to make the films unique enough that TV stations will want to show them without the Track having to pay for play. Condition: Some wear and staining to covers, including coffee cup rings, droplet stains, soiling, and some edge and corner wear. Internally very nice, the pages and photos are bright, clean, clear, and unmarked. One of a only few, perhaps even a one of a kind report. An interesting, rare item related to the history of Delaware Park. About DELAWARE PARK THOROUGHBRED HORSE RACING TRACK (from Wikipedia): ******Delaware Park (also known as DelPark) is an American horse racing track, casino, and golf course in Stanton, Delaware. It is located just outside the city of Wilmington, and about 30 miles from Philadelphia. William DuPont, Jr. a designer of twenty three racing courses, designed and built Delaware Park Racetrack in partnership with Donald P. Ross. Phillip T. Harris of Media, PA., was hired as the architectural engineer. The facility opened on June 26, 1937 and today is the only thoroughbred horse racing track in the state of Delaware. Races are run from May to October. In recent years, near Triple Crown winner Afleet Alex and Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, both won their career debuts at Delaware (Barbaro did it on the grass at 7-1), and the sprint champion mare Xtra Heat was based there. The track is now home to many horses who routinely ship to and win at the major circuits in New York, Florida and Kentucky.******

    Young Extreme Athletes Defying Gravity! Got Milk?

    GOT MILK GRAVITY TOUR : 174 PHOTOS of the EXTREME SPORTS CAMPAIGN TOUR to PROMOTE MILK. A 3 ring binder holding plastic sleeves with pockets for 2 photos on a side. The photos are mostly in color and measure 6x4 inches, about 30 of the photos are in b&w and somewhat smaller in size. The photos are mostly of the EXTREME SPORT ATHLETES in ACTION on BIKES and SKATEBOARDS and even one on INLINE SKATES, performing at various locations of the GOT MILK GRAVITY TOUR.

    The photos show athletes in the air and on the ground performing "Gravity Defying" stunts at various arenas where the tour event took place. Some of the photos are of crowds behind GOT MILK advertising barriers.

    These photos are of the 2000 GOT MILK GRAVITY TOUR and I do not know exactly who the athletes that year were, but those of you who know your extreme athletes will be sure to recognize at least some of them. Thirty of the photos are b&w group publicity photos in front of a GOT MILK backdrop.

    This 2000 Got Milk Gravity Tour was one of the early manifestations of the event that grew larger year by year. I found the following information about the athletes in the 2001 Got Milk Gravity Tour, though I do not know if the athletes were the same in 2000 as 2001. Here is what I found:

    ******The Got Milk Gravity Tour will feature skateboarders, BMX bike riders, and even an inline skater. The following people will be participating at the Stockton event: CHRIS GENTRY is a professional skateboarder who is ranked as one of the top ten Vert competitors in the world. At the 2000 X Games, Chris placed seventh in Vert Competition and fourth in Vert Doubles. JOHN PARKER, whose name is synonymous with BMX riding, placed fourth in the 2000 X Games in BMX Vert. He consistently places in the top 5 in every contest he enters. CHRIS LIVINGSTON was a vert skateboard Finalist in the 1997 Vans/Hard Rock Triple Crown of Skateboarding. ART THOMASON specializes in flatland bicycle stunts, in which he finished 10th in the world at the 1999 ESPN X Games. Before his professional career, he won the amateur flatland title in the 1996 ESPN Destination Extreme series. JIM BURGESS is an ESPN X Games competitor and consistent top 10 finisher in professional contests. JEFF FERRIS, team manager/skateboarder, was a finalist in the 1998 Vans Shoes World Skateboard competition. BILL ROBERTSON is the veteran on the Gravity Team. Bill has been skateboarding for more than 20 years. He specializes in "old-school" flatland skateboarding, wowing the crowds with spins, kickflips, and handstands. When not skating, Bill is the tour master of ceremonies.******

    PLEASE INSPECT THE PHOTOS TO SEE IF THESE ATHLETES WERE IN THE 2000 TOUR.

    All the photos are in VERY GOOD condition, bright, clean and clear.

    INCLUDED with the binder full of photos is an unopened / sealed copy of the GRAVITY TOUR MILK CD (produced in 1999).

    Comes from the St. Helena, California, estate of an ADVERTISING MAN.
