This a 1930 Popeye shooting hoops. Very very hard to find these days. Collectors just are not letting go of these.
Manufactured by for Linemar I believe in Japan. It is also stamped King Features Syndicate. They toy measures 9 inched tall.This is just a very cool toy to own. I cannot say enough about it. Wind him up and Popeye shoots hoops. The lithograph on this toy is bright and happy.
It is all in tack. The bright yellow paint is in fantastic shape for its age. Please zoom in on all the photos.
Dont let this one get away. It works as it should. This is a great addition to any tin toy collection. I have owned him for about 10 years let me tell you he is an eye catcher and a crowd pleaser. The net as you can see is missing I believe a little bit of the bottom all the way around.
It Never drew a lot of attention as the toy in all is in excellent condition. It may have minimal light surface scratches throughout but nothing major. I love this toy but its time to find him a new home. Please make a descent offer. Remember this toy is becoming very scarce dont let it get away.
So please dont ask what my bottom line is make a descent offer and I will reply. Zoom in on the photos.
