Large 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack Collection Discovered

Finding even a few undiscovered 1914 Cracker Jack cards could be considered a rarity. But recently, a large collection of them was found, discovered by Love of the Game Auctions.

A total of 171 surfaced in Stockton, New Jersey. The owners contacted Al Crisifulli of the auction house, who is handling the sale. The collection includes most of the big names, such as Honus Wagner and Christy Mathewson. In addition to big name Hall of Famers, the collection also boasts the rare Del Pratt card. The biggest prize missing is the Ty Cobb card.

Family members happened upon the collection from an old relative that passed away more than a decade ago. They went virtually untouched until this summer when they were discovered.

Despite being more than 100 years old, the cards were in tremendous condition. Even without the missing Cobb card, the collection is still expected to fetch over six figures at auction
