    Description

    1915 Cracker Jack Hughie Jennings #77 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Five, None Higher. The Cracker Jack series appeared at the end of what is referred to as the early era of candy/caramel cards and is one of the most popular issues. The blazing red backgrounds are a calling card of the fragile paper cards that accompanied the sugary snack. Despite an offer where one could acquire a complete set from Cracker Jack, "The Famous Popcorn Confection" and their fragile nature have made high-grade examples a scarce commodity. Offered is one of the finest examples of card #77 featuring Hughie "Ee-Yah" Jennings.

    Hall of Famer Hugh Jennings excelled as both player and manager for over forty years. He was an excellent shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles who won National League championships in 1894, 1895 and 1896. He bested the exalted .400 mark with a .401 average in 1896 belting out over 200 hits. While with Brooklyn, Jennings helped make them pennant winners in 1899 and 1900. As manager and coach of the Detroit Tigers, over the span of 13 seasons he gave the Detroit faithful American League pennants in 1907, '08 and 1909.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. One of only five in MINT. None have rated higher. Amazing attention grabber with colors and print quality virtually beyond compare which also applies to the pristine surfaces. His portrait is precisely surrounded by a vivid white border and four mint corners. Of the almost 13,000 cards currently encapsulated by PSA, just under 2.5% have survived as flawlessly.
