Extremely Rare 1914 E145 Cracker Jack #93 Del Pratt - Low Pop Rarity!

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $5,400

Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. Presented is an extremely attractive example of #93 Del Pratt (St. Louis Browns) from the 1914 Cracker Jack #144 series. Pratt has long been considered one of the most difficult cards in the set, and the population reports support this fact. To date, out of 2,420 cards from the 1914 Cracker Jack set evaluated by SGC, only nine examples of Pratt have ever been graded. Pratt is also extremely rare to find in high grade, with only four examples grading higher than the offered card. Bright and crisp, with a bold red background, the card is centered to the right with even wear to the corners. The front and back both display very faint traces of caramel staining, far less than is normally encountered with #144 series cards. The 1914 Cracker Jacks, of course, are far rarer to find in high grade than their 1915 counterparts, because the 1914 #144 series cards were only issued in boxes of Cracker Jack. This is a superb example from this classic set that would make an outstanding addition to any high-quality 1914 Cracker Jack set or prewar-card collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $5,400
