I think that the little people are CC prizes and the hand standing clown?

The 7 little people, starting with the girl with the pail all the way to the fisherman are all C.C.C. pieces. The standing clown isn't. That a nice set of toys. Is that your latest acquisition?

Yes my latest Epray pick up. I have wanted a milk man and a mail man for a while and this lot took care of that.

I think they are all Cracker Jack! You have part of a put-together woman (reddish color) in the bottom row. She is short a base and I think there is something that goes on her head. There is a really unusual soft plastic figure at the end of the top row--a person sparring. I have never seen one in yellow. Is the picture a true color? Thanks!http://www.crackerjackcollectors.com/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&f=14&t=606#

As far as I know they are all ture colors. I will know when I get the lot end of this week. Do items that are rare colors have more value? I purchaed it for the Cloud figures and the milkman and the Buddha was a cool marble color.

Hi All,
I've been looking at the man sparring or boxer rare color. I think the picture might be a little misleading. I am not so sure he is yellow. He might be the "off-white" or "ivory" color described in our study group on these sports figures. I do have a yellow one from that series, but it is a hard plastic one. More information can be found on the entire series in the study group forum.

You have a very nice lot of plastic pieces. I think your orange marbled buddha is spectacular. Very nice colors there. Glad you found a couple milkmen. My very first CJ prize, back in about 1949-1950, was a red milkman. I was four or five years old when I found it in a box of CJ given to me by my dad. Now I have 68 milkmen in many different colors. Thanks for sharing your newest additions to your collection with all of us.

Row 1, #1 (hunter with rifle) is a cereal prize. The ones I had like that had no markings, and there were over 15 different ones in the set. I have some in the original clear cellephane wrappers.
Row 1, #4 (pugelist). I question this one because of the size. If it is marked NOSCO on the base, then it is CJ -- if not marked, I would say not. There were numerous flats this size sold by mail order.
Row 1, #5 (baseball player) is a marked NOSCO prize like the others that size, but it has a broken base.
Row 1, #10 (small pugelist) is a CJ prize if it is soft plastic. The hard plastic ones were copies produced about the same time, but marketed in dime stores.
Row 2, #2 (mountain man with rifle) is a cereal prize.
Row 2, #5 (fisher boy) this NOSCO flat has a broken base.
Row 2, #6-12 are Carey Cloud designs.
Row 3, #3 is part of a CJ put-together prize; there are other pieces missing.
The others that I didn't mention are well established as prizes that came in Cracker Jack.
