Graded VG 3 by PSA. The 1914 Cracker Jack is understandably one of Honus Wagner's most striking and popular cards. The "Flying Dutchman" is one of the big three key cards in the set, along with Cobb and Jackson. This card is well centered (slightly to the left), with outstanding color, perfect registration, and an extremely bold red background. There is light, even wear to the corners. Bright and clean, both front and back, with virtually no hints of caramel staining (which is usually found on #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 card would be a highlight addition to any collection of Cracker Jack, Honus Wagner, or vintage Hall of Fame cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+.
