DESCRIPTION
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Exceptionally strong and attractive example of the 1914 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson. For a Vg-Ex card, this example is in tremendous condition and is extraordinary in all respects for the grade. Looking at the population reports for both PSA and SGC, we could not help but be struck by how few 1914 Joe Jackson Cracker Jack cards have ever been graded. The total (and this number almost certainly overstates the true number of examples, due to regrading and switching holders from one company to another without retiring labels) is only thirty-four cards (21 PSA and 13 by SGC). 1914 Cracker Jacks are naturally much more difficult to find in high grade than their 1915 counterparts because the 1914 #144 series cards were only issued in boxes of Cracker Jack, while the 1915 cards could be obtained as a factory set directly from the company by mail. The 1914 Cracker Jack is one of the most sought-after of all Joe Jackson cards. Jackson is featured on this card in a batting pose based on a photograph by legendary photographer Charles Conlon, set against a deep red background. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with four square corners showing just the slightest hint of wear, and extremely bold colors. Beautifully centered approximately 45/55 left to right, with a slight picture tilt that is characteristic of this card. 1914 Cracker Jacks, of course, are almost always found with serious caramel staining. This card has a light stain on the lower right portion of the card (more visible on the reverse) and is otherwise perfectly clean. This is a very striking card that would be a highlight in any world-class collection of Cracker Jack, Joe Jackson, or classic vintage baseball cards. Reserve $3,000. Estimate $5,000/$10,000.
