    1914 Cracker Jack Miller Huggins #75 PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop One, None Higher! If it was easy to assemble a 1914 Cracker Jack set in Near Mint or better condition than this card and the others in this auction wouldn't rouse the senses and become the stuff of dreams. Before Huggins was known as "Mighty Mite" for his scrawny five-foot six inch frame, the Cincinnati 2nd Baseman became a Hall of Fame skipper who led the Yankees to their first six pennants and three World Championships as he butted heads with a boozing Bambino. His early and tragic death from blood poisoning in 1929 has made the Murderer's Row manager a scarce appearance in any card promotion. Offered is his entry from the 1914 Cracker Jack series, a condition rarity that ranks among the top 2.4% of the close to 3,500 total '14 Cracker Jack submissions. The inspiring red backgrounds, the professional portraits and the challenge that comes in finding high grade card make this edition one of the all-time great baseball card issues.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. The detail in his profile is exceptionally crisp. The corners show mere hints of wear at the very outer tips. Surfaces are clean and bright white, there is a complete lack of product staining making us wonder if this card ever saw the inside of a Cracker Jack box. No advanced collector should be without a magnificent type in their collection and we think the finest example of a HoFer would make a great choice. We tip our hat to the few advanced hobbyists who will try to build a high-grade set and we happily give them the opportunity to become one HoF step closer. Total graded by PSA: Twenty-seven. This is the highest graded example on the PSA census report!
