    Buddy Ebsen's Memento Cracker Jack Box. A box of Cracker Jack played a notable role in Breakfast at Tiffany's, when in one scene George Peppard's character meets Holly Golightly's husband, Doc (played by Ebsen), he is given the ring from Mr. Golightly's box of the famous snack. Later on, he and Holly go to Tiffany's to buy a gift, but because they're short on cash, they settle for having the ring engraved. This box of Cracker Jack -- manufactured during its 100th anniversary in the 1990s -- was given to Ebsen by an unknown person, and it comes in a 6" x 4" x 1.5" glass box engraved "Buddy Ebsen/'Breakfast at Tiffany's'/2-15-94." It was of obvious importance to Buddy, who kept it on his desk until his death. It displays a fair amount of sunfading, but is otherwise in Very Fine to Excellent condition. From the Buddy Ebsen Estate.
