Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Tris Speaker from the legendary 1914 Cracker Jack series. 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. This example is almost entirely clean, with just a few faint spots of staining, far less than normally encountered. The red color of the background is deep and vibrant. The printing registration is flawless. The square corners show light wear. Centered slightly to the right. This is a tremendous example from this classic set that would be an outstanding addition to any high-quality 1914 Cracker Jack set or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
