Baseball photo CJ prize?

Post by Aim36 » Sun Sep 06, 2015 10:12 pm

Is this baseball photo a Cracker Jack prize and if not, any idea where it might have came from?
Found in estate sale junk box in early 90's...could be as early as early 1900's???
Thanks for any help!

Not able to upload photo, says file too big? Any advice?

Your baseball piece is a gumball or peanut machine prize, for sure not Cracker Jack, but still very neat. There were lots of these made in the 1950's. I have seen pieces identical to this with movie star photos on them; I don't remember seeing a baseball player before.

Thank you for replying! That sounds like a logical answer. My mom thought it was a Cracker Jack for sure but I haven't found any other prizes that looked like this... Thanks...

I don't know of a resource for you for research. See ebay item# 301732025965. There are several items in that lot similar to your piece.
