Description

“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks” is as much part of the baseball landscape as hot dogs and overpriced beer. In 1914, however, Cracker Jack actually provided a valuable treasure inside each cartoon of caramel covered corn – a lovely photo card of the most popular baseballers in the game. The Cracker Jack series was issued over two years, each measured 2 ¼” x 3” and displayed a colored photograph of the player against a bright red background. This assortment of (33) cards includes (27) from 1914 and (6) from 1915 with all cards ranging from poor to VG-EX, with the average card retaining most of the qualities of a GD condition Cracker Jack. The list of cards included in the collection is: 1914 -- #1 (Knabe, FR-GD), 3 (Tinker, PR), 4, 9, 10, 11, 14 (Crawford, FR), 15, 18 (Evers, PR), 23 (Comiskey, FR), 29, 51, 59, 60, 73 (Carey, FR-GD), 77 (Jennings, GD), 81, 99 (Chance, FR), 108, 117, 126, 128, 133 (Rickey, FR), 134, 137, 140, and 141. The (6) 1915 cards are #5, 53, 87, 94 (Cicotte, VG-EX), 138 and173. Offered is the chance to grab up and well-stocked, low-grade collection of Cracker Jack cards.
