1914 Cracker Jack Baseball Cards
The 1914 Cracker Jack Baseball Card Set (E145-1) has 144 cards, which measure 2-1/4" x 3". The first of two consecutive sets, with identical card fronts, the 1914 Cracker Jack cards can be easily confused with the cards issued the following year. The main difference is that the back of the 1914 Cracker Jack cards have an advertisement for a "complete set of 144 pictures", and the type on the card back is NOT printed upside down, in relation to the card fronts, as was done with the following years' issue.
The 1914 Cracker Jack set is star-packed and includes 32 future Hall-of-Fame members, including: #30 Ty Cobb, #57 Walter Johnson, #68 Honus Wagner and #88 Christy Mathewson. Ironically, the most sought after star card in the 1914 Cracker Jack, contains an image of a player who is not in the Hall-of-Fame:#103 Shoeless Joe Jackson.
