Popeye Shipwreck Game from 1933

While walking to work every so often I’ll pass an antique store which is on the corner of Houston and Elizabeth Street — this week I came across an amazing find: A framed vintage 1933 Popeye the Sailor Shipwreck Game published by Funland Books and Games. I only had my iPhone camera on me so the detail in these shots is limited, but the artwork looked just amazing (click to see at full size):

The caricatures used in the game weren’t always very politically correct, but the amount of little details made this board game amazing to look at:
