As a side note: This is the very prize booklet that I had used for the creation of the 1997 oversized or jumbo Cracker Jack phone card. The image was cleaned up of course. The phone card was #3 of 5 different Cracker Jack phone cards that were created for Borden, Inc., Leisure Concepts, and USA Card. This was the only special large or jumbo card and there were only (125) of the plastic cards made. Needless to say these are also rare.
The premium puzzle booklet measures about 2-1/2'' x 4''. With clean and colorful pages it appears to be in good condition with some light wear and a few spots as pictured.
