The recent "what is a card" thread leads me to post an unusual insert that you might enjoy. In 1937, Pillsbury sold a product called "Comicooky"...a decorating set featuring punchouts of Famous Artists Syndicate comic strip characters. There were six different strips separately packaged: DICK TRACY, MOON MULLINS, HAROLD TEEN, GASOLINE ALLEY, SMITTY and WINNIE WINKLE. Each boxed set included a metal cookie cutter and six cardboard sheets with punchout figures. Each sheet measures 4 1/2" x 6 3/4" and the backs are blank.
Here are the Tracy sheets plus the front and back of the box. I can scan the other characters if anyone is interested...
