Graded VG 3 by PSA. Outstanding mid-grade example of the 1914 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson. For a Vg 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-five cards (21 PSA and 14 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 even wear on the corners, and extremely bold colors. Centered to the right (approximately 70/30 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 some light stains but far fewer than typically found on this card. 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. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $7,500. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
