Tin Finger/Hand Spins This Means You

Post by prodmgr2001 » Mon Jan 21, 2013 7:23 pm

I bought this at an estate sale with some other items, I don't know if it is cracker jack or not, can someone help me identify it? Thank you for your help.

I remember someone brought one of these spinners to the Cracker Jack Collectors Association convention in the last couple of years. If I remember correctly, it was thought to be a Checkers prize. A neat find!

Cyndy. It might be helpful for the person asking the question to know that Checkers was a competitive brand of popcorn confection that The Cracker Jack Co. bought out and continued to market for a period. Thanks, Jeffrey
