Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Extraordinary example of #30 Ty Cobb from the classic 1914 Cracker Jack series. This card presents extremely well! It is rare to find any 1914 Cracker Jack in such presentable condition, let alone an example of a key Hall of Famer like Ty Cobb. This card is universally recognized as one of card collecting's great classics, and one of Ty Cobb's most desirable and striking cards. 1914 Cracker Jacks are naturally much more difficult to find in high grade than their 1915 counterparts because the 1914 #144 series cards were issued only in boxes of Cracker Jack, while the 1915 set could be obtained as a factory set directly from the company by mail. Cobb is featured on this card in a batting pose set against a deep red background. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with only a few faint traces of caramel staining (ideally relegated to outside the image area or the reverse), far less than what so frequently plagues 1914 #144 series Cracker Jack cards. The card possesses outstanding color, flawless registration, light, even wear to the four corners, and superb centering. 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 $10,000.
