|The picture below shows a larger front and back view of this colorful 1914 Cracker Jack Baseball Card of George T. Stovall of the Kansas City Federals. This s an original card from 1914 that was used as a prize in a box of Cracker Jack. It is not a reproduction or one of the newer cards that have been made. It is #11 of a set of 144 cards that were used. The cards issued were from the American, National, and Federal Leagues. They were put out by Rueckheim Bros. & Eckstein, the makers of Cracker Jack.|
The 1914 baseball cards had proved to be popular, so the following year (1915) they were again added as a prize with a set of 176 cards. In 1915 the set was also offered as a mail away premium with an album to put them in. The cards from the 1915 set have the premium offer on the back and the 1914 cards do not.
The baseball card measures about 2-1/4" x 3". We are not a grading company, and this card has not been graded. Please judge by the clear image of the card as to the condition. Please keep in mind that these early Cracker Jack baseball cards were packed in the boxes right with the food product and it is normal to find molasses stains on them. This applies to those that were found in the boxes and not to the 1915 premium set that was mailed away for.
