The Harlem Globetrotters animated TV cartoon series on Kirschner Records and “Presenting The Sugar Bears”  on Big Three Records.  Back in the late sixties/early seventies when Saturday morning cartoons and commercials were indistiguishable from each other.  And we were glued to the tube while eating our bowls of cereal without ever looking down.  These and a hundred more cool records from the LP Cover Lover collection are up on the auction block starting this weekend.
