Posted By: <b>Mike H</b><p>Probably a part off an old mechanical game. Worth $100 imo for anything old and figural. The mask is very cool.

They would have these at carnivals and you'd throw a ball as hard as you could to see if you could break the cup. After you were unsuccessful, they'd then try to sell you a cup.<br /><br />Rob M.

Posted By: <b>CarltonHendricks</b><p>LOL, I had that in my watch list...I don't know what it is but it's kind of cool....it had to have been made with that weird whatch-ya-macallit indented area for some particular reason. Rob M. Are you serious? It was used in a carnival?

Posted By: <b>ramram</b><p>Oh hell, I don't know....<br /><br />I thought it could pass as a carnival thing-a-majig until I realized the cup would have to be in there upside down!<br /><br />Rob M.

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>that is the best spelling of "thing-a-majig" I have seen. I think it might define quite a few memorabilia articles very nicely. I don't want to say what I thought when I saw this....
