The current high bid for the complete set, $30,000.00, is greater than the aggregate total of the bids on the single cards that comprise this set, $29,165.00 (this lot is currently losing)
2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the landmark E145 Cracker Jack set.  One of the most beautiful card issues ever released, the Cracker Jack cards - and the product - have captured the imagination of the hobby for a century.  Likely the most popular and highly desirable of all the caramel issues - and one of the most popular prewar sets in general, the cards feature 144 of the game's biggest stars, presented on bold, red cards printed on lightweight, cream-colored stock.

Cards from the 1914 issue are difficult to find, and incredibly condition-sensitive, due to the flimsy paper on which they were printed, as well as the fact that the cards were inserted into boxes of Cracker Jacks.  Obviously this put the cards in close proximity to the product, leaving them susceptible to caramel staining - a fact of life with Cracker Jacks.    For this reason, only four current complete graded sets exist on the PSA and SGC registries combined.

We are pleased to be offering a near-set of 1914 Cracker Jacks, ranked #4 on the PSA Set Registry.  The set will be offered as a complete near set, and as individual lots.  When the auction closes, the higher of the two - either the winning bid on this lot (the complete near-set) or the cumulative total of the individual lots (lots 171-213) will be awarded the spoils. 

Attractive but accurately graded card of the "Mighty Mite," depicted here as the manager of the Cardinals.  Eventually Huggins would go on to become the manager of the famous Yankees "Murderers' Row" teams, frequently feuding with Babe Ruth.
