Cracker Jack Bears Going over Niagara Falls New York Postcard

The Cracker Jack Bears Advertising Postcard #3

 It Reads on the botton of  the postcard  "The Cracker Jack Bears No. 3". The drawing on the postcard is of a bear in a cracker jack box going over Niagara Falls while eating a box of CRACKER JACKS 

This postcard is not the standard size, it measures 3" x 5 1/2". The message side  of this postcard  has a name written in pencil but has never been mailed. The left side is marked 

"Sixteen Beautiful Post Cards, No Two Alike // (without this printing), sent Free to anyone who will mail us ten // sides from Cracker Jack packages, reading "The more you eat, the // more you want," or mail us 10c in silver or stamps and the side of one package. A 2c stamp is enough to mail ten sides. // Rueckheim Bros. & Eckstein, Chicago, U.S.A."


THESE ARE TWO DARING BEARS, but still snacking on Cracker Jacks  POEM READS

At Niagara Falls this daring bear

I'm sure no one his deed would share.

No thought of fear can call him back.

His thoughts are all of Cracker Jack.


This is so cute because of the bear riding in a cracker jack box.  NO 3 in series of 16
