1914 E145 Cracker Jack SGC VG/EX+ 55 and VG/EX 50 Collection (8) Including Baker and Maranville
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,000
Collection of eight different 1914 E145 Cracker Jack cards, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA), highlighted by Hall of Famers Frank Baker and Rabbit Maranville. The 1914 #144 series Cracker Jacks are far rarer than their 1915 counterparts, because the 1914 cards were not available by mail, and could only be obtained one card per package in boxes of Cracker Jacks. Because of their method of issue, 1914 Cracker Jacks are also almost always found with various condition problems including caramel staining. This collection consists of the following: #2 Baker (HOF, VG/EX 50), 9 Hoffman (VG/EX 50), 31 Wagner (VG/EX+ 55), 41 Leach (VG/EX 50), 54 O'Toole (VG/EX+ 55), 60 Zieder (VG/EX+ 55), 72 Boehling (VG/EX+ 55), and 136 Maranville (HOF, VG/EX 50). All eight cards are bright and crisp, with minimal caramel staining (slightly more on the reverse of Maranville). This is an exceptionally attractive midgrade collection of 1914 Cracker Jacks. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $3,565. Total: 8 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $3,000
