1915 E145 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson PSA NM 7
Starting Bid - $10,000, Sold For - $27,000
Graded NM 7 by PSA (submitted by REA). Absolutely stunning factory-set-fresh, ultra high-grade example of the 1915 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson, one of the most sought-after of all Joe Jackson cards. This is an exceptionally strong and attractive Nr/Mt example. It has all the qualities of an even higher-graded example and has been downgraded solely due to the approximately 30/70 L/R centering at the bottom portion of the card. The card is absolutely pristine, crisp, and perfectly fresh, both front and back. The red color of the background is particularly deep and bold. This card is obviously from a factory set obtained directly from the company by mail, and was never packaged in a box of Cracker Jacks, thus explaining its remarkable condition. It is an almost ideal example that has been the cornerstone of our consignor's Cracker Jack set for many years. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with deep, bright colors, and perfect registration. Close examination reveals an ever-so-slight picture tilt that is characteristic of the card and contributes to the side-to-side centering issue. The borders are bright and clean, as is the entire front and reverse. All four corners are strong and square, with only the slightest hint of wear on the tips visible under magnification. This is a stunning card in every way and one that offers a particularly rare opportunity as high-quality 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson cards rarely come up for auction. This is an extraordinary example of one of card collecting's most classic and popular cards worthy of the finest world-class collection. The SMR value in the assigned grade is $25,000. SOLD FOR $27,000
