|The picture shows this Early Checkers Popcorn Confection Auto Stand Up Tin Prize. This was a prize that came in a box of Checkers.|
The Checkers Popcorn product was from the Shotwell Manufacturing Company. It was a very strong competitor to Cracker Jack. So much so that Cracker Jack bought the product outright in 1926. It was continued but eventually phased out.
The stand up car prize is made of tin and it is imprinted with red and black ink on a white background. It has a poem on the bottom section that folds over that reads as follows:
Mabel Had A Little Car,
And Stood It On The Table,
She Said 'Taint Big Enough For Ma,
But It's Awf'ly Nice For Mabel
It measures 1-7/8" wide. It is in excellent condition as pictured with wear from the base being bent over.
