|The picture below shows larger views of this 1910s Cracker Jack Pop Corn Confection Advertising Movie Slide Card Toy Prize. Shown are both views of the front, and the advertising on the back. This prize is not dated but it was used around the mid to late 1910s. This is a rare and desirable mechanical prize in any condition. When used these particular prizes did not last very long. They would easily fall apart, tear, or later become so brittle that they were unable to be used without breaking.|
The two views of this colorful prize are one image of a United States Navy ship and one image of a smiling Sailor Jack. This was one of the very first colorful images of Sailor Jack that was used on prizes. The action of these prizes was later developed to what we know as flicker or lenticular images. Images that change when you move them. This prize works by pulling the tab from the top or below. The advertising on the two sides reads as follows:
