That is a cool recording and a nice find. I wonder who ended up winning the Stutz roadster!

I don't know, but they should have kept it--the earliest pricing I have for Stutz is from 1930 and for a car in No. 1 condition, which it probably would have been in being a restored one would be between $80,000 and $120,000!

I would have been happy with the booby prize for the worst lyrics by a boy: 100 used Charleston records! Not an insigificant prize at all!

This is also a perfect example of the stereotypical way in which 20's music was viewed at that time.

FWIW, this record was an insert for Seventeen Magazine.

And here is a website full of examples of cardboard records like this...

And if you want to learn some more, here's some history of these little records. Seems they are the final descendants of an era that also included the Durium HOTW.
