Ann's the collector who got this Cracker Jack group, the CJCA, started, but be careful -- her enthusiasm is contagious.  You will also learn what else she likes to collect.  Pay attention -- there's a quiz later.

Here is a collector whose Cracker Jack website is really shaping up.  Several articles and sources for Cracker Jack collecting information are included.  It is a good start for a collector's site that promises to become an asset to the Cracker Jack collecting hobby.

Read the fascinating story of how a young girl's collection of Cracker Jack prizes grew into a lifelong hobby of collecting and creating miniatures with her husband.  The result was Mott's Miniature Museum located at Knott's Berry Farm in California, which was visited by millions of people until the museum closed in 1992.
