I have never owned any 1914 cracker jacks. I got one in the mail from a ebay win and do not think it can be real it seems way to thin any advice would be great thank you BOB

Hey Bob, good news. You'd be in trouble if your CJ wasn't on thin stock. All CJ's are extremely thin, almost paper thin. I remember being surprised by that too when I acquired my first CJ.

So based on the stock yours is on, I can say with almost 100% certainty that yours is authentic. Maybe post a scan if you have one handy for confirmation.

One of my favorite sets, but have always held off trying for the set because of the Wagner and Joe Jackson, and the really expensive Matty. I did buy a reprint set which I enjoy because of the writings on the backs.

The thinness of the stock makes it amazing these cards ever stayed in decent shape.

Here is a card that will never part from my collection:



And my favorite pose on a baseball card:

Hay I just want to thank the forum. You guys always have that bit of info that answers most questions. I read most posts on net 54 but they tend to get a little nasty and off topic over there, any way I dont post over there just out of respect for full count so keep up the friendly chat BOB

Congrats Bob, on your new acquisition. That's a nice Tinker!

With regards to the card stock, is it similar to thickness of T216 Kotton Type 3's?

Bob, that's a beauty. I've never understood why 14's do not command an even bigger premium over the 15's.
They're so much tougher and condition sensative. Congrat's,

If memory serves me right, the 14's were only issued in the Cracker jacks and the 15's were in the Cracker Jacks plus could be ordered through the mail. thus the 15's have a better chance of no caramel stains..

I still would love to own one of the albums.

Hi Lee. I actually have a mild Julius Ceaser flip in the front, but nothing like the horns of Tinker.
He did have a unique "DOO", didn't he?
