Tall Tale Coasters- Babe the Blue Ox

The last piece in the set of tall tale coasters is "Babe" the blue ox. I wonder how many of these coasters were sold, or if they were made for some kind of promotion. Was there a Paul Bunyan one? This picture doesn't show how large Babe is supposed to be, and I wish Paul was in it too. According to the legend, Paul and Babe created many of the "natural" wonders of the United States. Their footprints created the numerous lakes of Minnesota, and Paul's Axe dug the Grand Canyon. These tall tales are a kind of American mythology.
