What would any one say is the most searched for plastic or metal cracker jack toy?

Since you limited it to just plastic and metal, that leaves out those much sought after Cracker Jack baseball cards from a hundred years ago.

That's a tough question to answer, because I'm not sure if there is one particular piece. Here's my 2 cents...

Recently there's been a lot of interest in 'Haley's Cracker Jacks bracelet' from the TV series One Tree Hill. However, since it's never was a Cracker Jack prize, that's one that'll never be found.

There's also the the ring given to Holly Golightly in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. There have been rings in boxes of Cracker Jack over the years, but none that looked quite like the one in the movie. The pot metal rings that were in Cracker Jack boxes wouldn't be engrave-able, as the one in the movie was.

The recalled sea captain is popular with many. It's a sad tale that I'd leave for another day.

Those are the ones that seem to be the most sought after, but it's early in the morning, and I'm probably forgetting something. I'd be interested to hear what others think is the most sought after Cracker Jack plastic/metal prize.

Thank you for Your Thoughts. If you have not already figured it out I'm the one that started the fb page and sent the link. I am learning so much

Hello :hiya:


The metal rings throughout the years seems to be the one Cracker Jack prize many people from the general public seem to remember fondly. :santabanana:

I enjoy searching for paper Cracker Jack prizes because these type of Cracker Jack prizes are the hardest to keep intact! :humbsip:

By the way, why not join the CJCA and open the complete joy of this fantastic forum on the collecting of Cracker Jack prizes! :cloud9:

I had thought of Joining When I got out my dad's collection I had plans of really getting in to the world of cracker Jacks. But sadly I find that instead of bringing back that warm feeling of my dad it is only bringing back the sad feeling off his loss and the bad way we lost him. So to preserve my memories I'm going to try to find someone that will love them to, as I have no other family to give them to. Thank you so much for all your help.
