Quaker Oats Company featured a gold plated ring, charm bracelet and a scoring device to keep track of balls and strikes. All were redeemable for box tops.
I was lucky to find, in Attleboro, Massachusetts, the plaster mold used by a tracing tool to make the die to stamp out the Quaker Oats ring. This plaster tracing mold is 24 x 6 inches and weighs 11 pounds hand crafted with malicious care so that a precision die could be traced to make the finished ring. The gold plated ring was available for just five box tops or one box top and ten cents. Cereal companies like Quaker Oars offered premium for years but the Centennial of Baseball provided new marketing strategies.
