1914 E145 Cracker Jack PSA-Graded Collection (20)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $2,115.00
Collection of twenty different 1914 E145 Cracker Jack cards including three Hall of Famers (#12 Connie Mack, 18 Johnny Evers, and 161 Ed Roush), each graded and encapsulated by PSA (with the exception of five cards graded by SGC, as noted). 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. The PSA grades are as follows: One VG-EX 4: #50 Hummell (Hummel). Eight VG 3: #27 Carrigan (Carter Collection, SGC VG 40), 29 Gregg (Carter Collection, SGC VG 40), 56 Milan, 59 Gessler, 62 Cashion (Carter Collection, SGC VG 40), 106 Birmingham, 112 Sweeney, and 144 Walsh (last card in set). Six GOOD 30: #12 Connie Mack (HOF), 21 Zimmerman, 25 Simon (Carter Collection, SGC GOOD 30), 49 Miller (Carter Collection, SGC GOOD 30), 63 Adams, and 127 Schmidt (MC). Five PR-FR 1: #4 Doyle, 18 Johnny Evers (HOF), 28 Barry, 121 Perdue, and 161 Ed Rousch (HOF, Roush). The "Carter Collection" designation on many cards in this group refers to the fact that these cards were once part of the collection of Lionel Carter, one of organized card collecting's most respected pioneers. This is a very attractive medium-grade collection of one of card collecting's most classic sets, with eye-appeal far better than suggested by the technically accurate grades listed above. Total 20 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
