    Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb #30 SGC NM/MT 88 It's that song. "Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks." Who could think of that sticky-sweet snack without the instant mental association to our national pastime? It's impossible. One thing's for certain though -- that sticky sweetness was a poor bedfellow of baseball cards, leaving a good percentage of them coated with gooey spots. Such is not the case here. Perhaps Cobb and sweetness just couldn't possibly go together. Despite the approaching of the card's 90th birthday, there is not a single difference between its appearance now, and its appearance as it slid off the printing press and was sliced to its 2.25" x 3" size. Any so-called "defects" are due solely to the antiquated procedures used in its production, namely the slightly off-balance centering, the few specks of red background paint that edges onto the white borders, and a small darker spot of ink in the red area. The corners are beyond reproach, the surface silky-smooth, the back without a single dot of ink out of place. Only a single card has ever achieved a higher ranking from SGC, and just one more has tied this one. Suffice it to say that this is one of the most rare and desirable Cobb cards on earth.
