1915 E145 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $18,800.00

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptionally strong and attractive example of the 1915 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson, one of the most sought-after of all Joe Jackson cards. This is a tremendous Excellent condition card, and simply an extraordinary example in all respects for the grade. The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with deep, bright colors, perfect registration, and just the slightest hint of wear to each corner. Beautifully centered approximately 55/45 left to right, with an ever-so-slight picture tilt that is characteristic of the card. This card was obviously issued packed in a box of Cracker Jacks, as opposed to originating from a factory set by mail. There are a couple extremely small and light caramel stains, barely visible only on the reverse. Because of Jackson's placement on the sheet in the production process, most 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jacksons are slightly smaller than the other E145s (particularly with factory-set cards). In fact, in the old days, it was common for PSA to reject 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jacksons for grading due to "minimum size requirements." This example is a full-size card. This is a stunning card with a much stronger eye appeal than suggested by its technically accurate PSA grade. This is also a rarely offered and particularly desirable grade for this classic card, providing a relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive super high-grade example, without compromising on all of the most important qualities of the card. SMR value is $6,500. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000+. SOLD FOR $18,800.00
