Graded NM 84 by SGC. Spectacular high-grade factory-set-fresh example of what many consider the most classic of all Ty Cobb cards. The 1915 Cracker Jack is understandably one of Ty Cobb’s most striking and popular cards. 1915 Cracker Jacks will always be one of the most desirable prewar sets ever issued. The "Georgia Peach" is one of the big three key cards in the set, along with Joe Jackson and Honus Wagner. The offered card has outstanding color, perfect registration, and four sharp corners. The image has a natural slight tilt as made and gives the appearance of being way off center, left to right, but that is not the case. The reverse is perfectly clean with bold black text. This card was obviously once from an original "factory set" obtained by mail directly from the company. If not for the slight picture tilt, we believe this card would grade higher. This is a stunning and exceptionally high-grade example of one of prewar-card collecting's most popular classics. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+.
