    Only six superior!

    1914 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb #30 PSA EX-MT 6. Ever since Jack Norworth penned the lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in 1908, the link between our national pastime and Cracker Jacks have been assured, but the two-season trading card promotion that debuted half a dozen years later provides a more tangible link. The cards are instantly recognizable for the bold red color scheme that has drawn no shortage of enthusiasts in the century since their debut.

    There's a simple explanation for the reason that Cracker Jacks from the 1914 issue are far less common in high grades than those from its younger sibling of 1915. That second release offered the opportunity to acquire cards through the mail in label redemption orders, freeing some portion of the 1915 issue from the inherent risks of packaging with the gooey product that gave the set its name. There are twenty-eight examples of this Cobb #30 card rising higher within the 1915 PSA population compared to just a half dozen from this 1914 model.

    But as the Georgia Peach labored through his eighth of nine consecutive seasons as batting champion of the American League, one careful youngster managed to extricate this specimen with enough care to dodge the worst of that sticky fate, assuring its eventual encapsulation within an EX-MT 6 slab. Light corner touches and an eastward shift from center account for the balance of a condition report.
