Graded PR 1 by SGC. Very attractive technically low-grade example of #30 Ty Cobb from the classic 1914 Cracker Jack series. The 1914 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb is universally recognized as one of card collecting's great classics, and one of Ty Cobb's most desirable and striking cards. Cobb is featured on this card in a batting pose set against a deep red background. Glue residue across the front and a spot of paper loss on his chest accounts for the low technical grade despite the far better appearance. The card possesses outstanding color, an extremely bold red background, even wear to the four corners, and superb centering. The reverse is clean with boldly printed text. This is an attractive example of card #30 Ty Cobb in an extremely desirable grade. The classic Cracker Jack set is considered by many to be the most beautiful card set ever issued. The E145 Ty Cobb has always been, and will always be, in high demand, and the offered example would make a worthy addition to any Cracker Jack, Hall of Fame, or classic-card collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
