    Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Honus Wagner #68 PSA NM-MT 8. For the many hobbyists focusing their attention to candy, this is a most coveted piece. We should all be thankful that a complete set of Cracker Jack cards could be obtained for the heady sum of either 100 Cracker Jack coupons or 1 coupon plus 25-cents. The mailman must have been rather popular that year warding off the clamoring of impatient children desperately waiting for that package with the "Cracker Jack" return address. This offer alone seems to have allowed a small percentage of these thin paper collectibles to survive in this close to flawless state for future generations to gaze in bewilderment at what it must have been like to experience these now treasured mementos as they just rolled off the presses.

    Ranking among the great names like Jackson, Johnson and Cobb in status within this 176-card issue, the "Old Dutchman" is shown in an insightful portrait befitting the first shortstop to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. Colors are very bold and a magnifying glass is necessary to discern any hint of surface, edge or corner tip wear. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. We note that only seventeen cards have achieved a rating of NM-MT, only four have managed a higher grade. This is an exceptionally clean copy waiting to take its rightful place in one of the most advanced vintage card collections. Hard to believe that the card will soon be celebrating its centennial.
