  • Cereal Box prize ( studebaker red ball)

    A friend gave me a cereal box prize , a red ball studebaker badge ,about 3 inches tall , with two tiny holes at the top . Has anybody heard of these ? Are they worth anything , on the back the orignal owner has a price tag of $49.50 . It must be old if is the red ball logo. Has turning wheels ever done a story on them? Thanks Mike

        'Beg to differ, Jeff; not 1960s.

        I believe these were packaged and marketed only in the 1950s, and mid-50s at that. They really are going on 60 years of age, if not a full 60 years already.

        I personally remember opening the cereal boxes to get them, distinctly remember Nash, and have my Studebaker and Packard ones today, as mentioned in the earlier thread.

        By the 1960s, the red ball Studebaker logo would not have been used, and Packard and Nash were history. BP

          What Jeff said as to price, though; $49.50 for one of them is ridiculous.

          That ought to buy a whole set of them, and I'm not even sure how many were in the whole set. BP

              Not Studebaker,but from 50s

              I found this in the basement of my father in law's home. We were cleaning home up to sell. It is Pontiac, but I still thought it was neat!
