Description

    1914 Cracker Jack Del Pratt #93 PSA Good+ 2.5. Secretively nestled among the 144 subjects that comprise the 1914 Cracker Jack series are names that find their way into collections far less often than most others. It should come as no surprise that these scarcities are within the second half of the set. A famous name on that list is HoF pitching legend Christy Mathewson. Another famous rarity is Del Pratt of the St. Louis Browns. Other than both being major league baseball players, interestingly enough both attended college when few baseball players had the means to pursue higher education. The rarity of Pratt is well documented but not explained why he is one of biggest challenges facing the Cracker Jack hobbyist. Graded PSA Good+ 2.5. There are just seventeen total entries on the PSA census and that includes those with qualifiers. Staining is always an issue but thankfully this card has only modest amounts leaving pleasant eye appeal. Gently rounded corners surround the detailed illustration. This is a rare chance to get one very important step closer to completing your '14 set.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
