At 4 years old, in 1948, I was fascinated with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Trigger and anything to do with the "Double R Bar Ranch". My Mother bought me the outfit after taking a summer trip to the Post Cereal Plant in Kalamazoo Michigan. Many Post cereal boxes were purchased after that to obtain the buttons that were free inside, including a membership to the Roy Rogers Rider Club (after a mail-in), which I have proudly kept for all these years, and right next to my picture.
