Wonderful 1937 Game of Alley Oop tin based on the comic strip created by V.T. Hamlin and Stephen Slesinger. This game includes: the original tin with collectible label, four wooden triangular pieces and sixteen wooden drumstick pieces. The original comic strip was about a caveman living in prehistoric times who is transported to 1930's America. Characters and dinosaurs from this cartoon can be seen playing the game on the label.
This piece is in good condition overall. There are a few shallow scrapes to the surface of the tin, as well as some tarnish--mainly on the bottom. The outer label of the tin has some light scratches, a small black stain on the "A" of Alley and a minor dent. These imperfections are almost exclusively focused on the front side with the game name and not on the side with the character illustrations. The inside is clean and free from any major damage. The game pieces have been used, but remain in good condition.
