Extraordinary example of No. 30 Ty Cobb from the classic 1914 Cracker Jack series. Do not be fooled by the modest assigned grade. This card presents extremely well! It is rare to find any 1914 Cracker Jack in such impressive condition, let alone an example of a key Hall of Famer like Ty Cobb. This card is universally recognized as one of card collecting's great classics, and one of Ty Cobb's most desirable and striking cards. 1914 Cracker Jacks are naturally much more difficult to find in high grade than their 1915 counterparts because the 1914 cards were only issued in boxes of Cracker Jack, while the 1915 set could be obtained as a factory set directly from the company by mail. Cobb is featured on this card in a batting pose set against a deep-red background. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with only a few faint traces of caramel staining (ideally relegated to outside the image area or the reverse), far less than that which so frequently plagues 1914 Cracker Jack cards. The card possesses outstanding color, an extremely bold red background, light, even wear to the four corners, and superb centering and is modestly graded PSA 4. This is a very rarely offered midgrade example of the most important of all Cracker Jack or Ty Cobb cards, and one that would be a significant highlight in any world-class collection of 1914 Cracker Jack, Ty Cobb, or classic vintage baseball cards
