    Description

    1914 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb #30 PSA VG-EX 4. Although there was nothing that the word "sweet" would accurately describe the Georgia Peach, he does rank as the first or second most desirable entry from the hobby's most popular candy issue, appeared during what was another batting crown season for Cobb. What a thrill it must have been for a young child or an adult with a sweet tooth to pull out this card during a season that saw Cobb steal 96 bases, manage 208 hits and bat .369! In 1914, cards circulated inside boxes of Cracker Jacks alone that has made finding very high grade examples one of the hobby's more formidable tasks. The bold coloring and artful portraiture that characterize the set are entirely evident and tailor-made to honor baseball's finest. The undulation of the fragile paper stock is seen from the reverse. Surfaces do show staining and some soiling, corners show a very mild bluntness, both in far less amounts than one expects to find. All of this is quickly overshadowed by the close to precise centering and a complete lack of damaging creases and that deep stain left by caramel and sugar. A great example of one of Cobb's best card collectibles. Graded PSA VG-EX 4.
