Tin Tops

Post by Luke » Thu Oct 01, 2009 9:10 am

We've just acquired a few tin tops off of eBay, and I need to know if they're Cracker Jack tops. I know I'll never be able to beat Jerry, the undefeated champion of top spinning, but I'd like to win second place at the next convention. So, the question is... are these Cracker Jack tops?

Hello Luke,
They are all made in Japan and I believe fall into the "Probably" category. It wil be interesting to see what the consensus is on these.
Oh, that category is from the "You wish", "Never", "Possibly", "Probably", "Yes", and "It's marked Cracker Jack" identification guide.

Thanks Larry. "Probably" is better than "You wish". ;)

:hiya: Hi Luke,

Good question! I have never seen any evidence these tops were distributed in Cracker Jack. I will be interested also to see if there is any evidence of that.

Greetings Luke! :hiya:
I, too, purchased some of these tin tops on eBay. It was one of my earliest Cracker Jack prizes that I ever bought.
I thought that they were Cracker Jack. In Larry's book, on page 77, there is a picture and description of these tops!
I'm sticking with Larry! :D
This squirrely gal is *NUTS* about collecting Cracker Jack prizes!
