New Baseball Collectible

Last month, my wife and I went to an antique store in southern New Jersey.  There were many great items there.  Here is what I picked up for my collection:

It is a baseball collectible that you would find in your local candy store in the 1940's or 1950's.  You paid one penny to play.  You would punch out a circle and get a baseball play that corresponded to  a prize of a certain number of pieces of candy.  Everyone got at least one piece of candy and the top prize was 20 pieces for a home run!

This one is in great condition and has not been punched yet.
