New York Yankees Vintage Celluloid Toy Wind-up Baseball Player For Sale

This is an old wind-up celluloid baseball player with the New York Yankees logo on his left sleev(you might be able to see the logo if you zoom in on the first picture).When wound, heworkssporadically (he goes and then he stops andyou must give him a little tap for him to continue on!!). No dents or cracks, but it feels sort of like a crack on the side of his head, but thats how they put celluloid toys together. It is NOT a crack - when you examine under a magnifying glass, you will see it is the way they put the celluloid together and you can feel it all the way down his side on the outside of his right leg.This toy is dirty and needs a cleaning and the key isvery rusty. The arms are jointed at the shoulders and arms move, but the elastic that connects the arms is a bit loose (not bad but mentionable) from age. When you wind him up (I only wound him about 1or 2turns so as not to break the mechanism) and set him down, he goes forward then stops, turns and goes another way, all the while looking up as if to catch the ball! But like I said above --he does not run steady and whenhe stops, you must give him a little tap to get him moving again!! Also, the key for winding very rusty but is included. It is old and needs a gentle cleaning. The toy was protected inside the box (though it needs a gentle cleaning), but the original box (shown in the picture)is very old, dingy, and falling apart (when you bend the flaps they just fall off) and one flap is missing at the top. The toy is marked "Made in Occupied Japan" which is stamped right into the celluloid on the back and it is also printed on the bottom of the box. The toy measures almost 5 1/2" tall. Insurance is required on this item. Please email me with your questions. Thanks for looking!
