I am selling off my large, lifetime Cracker Jack collection. This is a great opportunity, or chance for you to be the proud owner of some nice old Cracker Jack items, including many Rare, one of a kind, Art pieces from Cracker Jack, or their toy prize History, plus the included prizes here. Both the Cracker Jack proof sheet, and the two shown prizes for one price! To judge the sizes the Art sheet, with a left side white edge, measures about 7-5/8'' x 5-3/4''. They appear to be in mint condition as made and as pictured. It appears that the instructions were cropped off the bottom row of the proof sheet when it was made.
