|There are (3) pictures showing views of this RARE Uncut #1 1973 Cereal Prize / Premium Prototype Test Sheet. Shown is the front, the back, and a closer view with the date and number. This is dated "3/9/73" and is numbered "#1". There are (42) Vacuform Magic Trick prizes (5 different ones) on this sheet. It is printed in five colors on white. Including the following:|
MAGIC PICTURE FRAME
MAGICAL MYSTERY STARS
This Vacuform sheet was produced by Gold Premium International, Inc. of Miami, Florida and was acquired years ago from one of their former Designers.
Each prize on the sheet is marked, but not dated. There are instructions on each side and many of these have the line:
"PRESTO CHANGO CHEERIOS"
which leads us to believe that these were to be General Mills / Cheerios Cereal prizes. In all our years of collecting, buying, and selling premiums we have never seen these available. We do not know if they had ever been finally produced or not. This may be the only example like it in existence.
To judge the sizes the sheet measures 31-1/2" x 23-3/4" x 3/8". This sheet had been stored folded until we received it. Because of this and age the fragile plastic has cracks in the center and some along the edge. We do not know how to grade the condition of this one of a kind item. It will be mailed to the buyer flat in a box. This is a great framable item.
