RIN TIN TIN ORDER FORMS – 1956
These cards were done in conjunction with the TV show, “The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin,” and were offers for mail-in premiums. We include them here, as they were in Shredded Wheat boxes.
There were originally 12 of these cards – hence 12 different premiums, but in 1957 one last card appeared, which mentioned ”12 other exciting Trading Post Premiums in all. Get every one! Follow “The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin” on TV every week! [ã Screen Gems, Inc, 1957].” These premiums are highly collectible.
