Personalized Crackerjack Champ Charm

Post by spudgy » Thu Jul 28, 2011 2:40 pm

Here is a metal (aluminum?) personalized good luck charm. The words "Crackerjack Champ Danny Sclltz" are embossed near the edge and "Good Luck" is embossed in the center. It's the kind of thing that you might see in an arcade where you could emboss your own name. Is it possible that this was a mail-in type of promotional item by Crackerjack?

Thanks.

These were made in an arcade machine, it cost a quarter to stamp whatever you wanted on it. It was pretty cool, I remember making several as a child. They have no association with Cracker Jack product or company.

Thanks, LittleRockRob. That's good to know. I rather doubted it was a Crackerjack prize but the stamp "Crackerjack Champ" made me wonder. Wonder what that was about.
