|The pictures show a view of all (12) 1930s Cracker Jack & Checkers Premium Rude Valentines With Envelope in this lot. These were made by Sam Gold of Gold Premiums. Each of these has a colorful graphic image and is marked ''CRACKER JACK'' and ''CHECKERS'' at the bottom right. Some of these Valentines were made unmarked, some just say Cracker Jack and some say just Checkers. These happen to be marked with both products. These are from a series of (25) Valentines that were given out as an in store premium when a Cracker Jack or Checkers purchase was made. As far as we know they were not used as a prize inside the box. In the order pictured these are titled as follows:|
BACK SEAT DRIVER
An original envelope is included. These are normally very hard to find. This one has a tear on the back and a piece of the paper missing as pictured, but the front looks pretty good and displayable. It is marked as follows:
MR. RETAILER ...

YOU WILL GREATLY ACCELERATE YOUR SALES OF CRACKER JACK OR CHECKERS BY PROMINENTLY DISPLAYING THE PRODUCT WITH SAMPLES OF THE VALENTINES TO BE GIVEN AWAY FREE, ONE WITH EACH PACKAGE.
The Valentines each measure about 6'' x 8-3/4''. They appear to be in good condition, however, ten of the twelve are pasted on scrap book pages. They do have some age discoloration from the pages as pictured.
