Among the most iconic and revered productions from all of the pre-war era. The 1915 Cracker Jack Baseball set consists of 176 subjects with each card measuring 2-1/4" by 3". This issue was printed on ultra thin cardstock and was inserted into boxes of the molasses covered popcorn snack. A highly desired factory set was also available by mail and that's what we have here, a beautiful non-product issue Ty Cobb which boasts some extremely beautiful, high-grade attributes. The offered GAI 8 possesses virtually immaculate surfaces which are void of all toning with extraordinary color and clarity present. The borders are flawless and the periphery is entirely fresh around. Furthermore, all four corners are undeniably NM-MT. A virtually microscopic wrinkle stems from the left edge and ends at Cobb's shoulder which prevents an even higher grade. We have chosen to highlight this card via video for further clarity on the GAI 8 assessment and the wrinkle present. First no-reserve auction in over a decade. All told, this card is impossibly rare and never seen on the public market. This iconic Ty Cobb production is largely considered a fine-art equivalent and seems poised for a bright investment future. Enjoy! One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 10th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
