1915 E145 Cracker Jack Complete Set (176)
Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $16,100.00
Complete set of E145 Cracker Jacks. Cracker Jacks are universally regarded as one of the most classic and highly regarded baseball card sets ever produced. Issued one card per box, the entire set of 176 cards could also be ordered by mail in exchange for 100 coupons, or 1 coupon plus 25 cents. Offered is a complete set of this important issue, which very likely was originally ordered as a complete set by mail, in overall Good to G-Vg condition. The set is remarkably consistent throughout, with virtually every single card falling into the very narrow range of grade from Good to G-Vg, exclusively due to rounded corners and surface toning and soiling. There are virtually no creases in the entire set. The Cracker Jack set includes 32 Hall of Famers and all of the great stars of the era. Highlights include: Joe Jackson, Frank Baker, Joe Tinker, Eddie Plank, Eddie Collins, Connie Mack, Sam Crawford, Roger Bresnahan, Johnny Evers, Chief Bender, Charles Comiskey, Ty Cobb, Mordecai Brown, Harry Hooper, Ed Walsh, G.C. Alexander, Chick Gandil, Rube Marquard, Zach Wheat, Walter Johnson, Ray Schalk, Tris Speaker, Nap Lajoie, Honus Wagner, John McGraw, Fred Clarke, Max Carey, Miller Huggins, Hugh Jennings, Christy Mathewson, and many, many more. A rarely offered, unbelievably consistent, and relatively affordable medium-grade complete set of one of card collecting's most classic issues. Total 176 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$15,000. SOLD FOR $16,100.00
