Seller thanked me for pointing out it was not an original and changed starting price from $350.00 to $5.00, which is only $4.50 more than it's worth.

But he still never mentioned anything about it's lack of authenticity. Nice. I wonder if the person already at $22 in bidding thinks it's real? Someone might have a little surprise coming, and not the happy, happy kind of surprise either. :eek:

I asked her twice if it was authentic and original and she would not answer. Got kind of upset I even posed the question!

I really hate doing this but I have never purchased a Cracker Jack. Can one of you explain how you knew right away it is a fake? Thanks

First of all it just has a fake look to it. :) The lithography is off. It is too "new" looking. And then the back is printed right side up and it should be upside down. Also, the corners look artificially worn, at best. Those are a few and I am sure there are more.

You know, I thought it was a faux pas to "out" ongoing auctions - now this gem is out there for everybody to see . . .

This is why I do not buy what I do not know. Laundry list of items. Thanks Leon!
