Description: First generation Astron Sprite kit from mid 60's. I believe this kit variety style was produced only during 1964 through 1965. The facecard is part of the instruction sheet. The facecard is illustrated with a black/white rocket image, the name "Astron Sprite" in red letters and a printed "price $.75".

Estes Catalog Artwork

K-15 Sprite was not listed in the Estes 1964 catalog and Ninfinger Productions does not illustrate a 1965 Estes catalog. Therefore no artwork illustration is available for this listing.
