Old Cracker Jack Cards Highlight Roadshow

Cracker Jack baseball cards An album full of 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack cards is one of the stars of the hit PBS show.




If only they hadn’t stuck them in a photo album.

A collection of 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack baseball cards is worth a nice chunk of change. The cards that walked into the Antiques Roadshow taping in Wichita, Kansas last summer would be worth more, though, if the kids who saved them nearly a century ago had just put them in a box and left them alone.

The show containing the cards segment is airing this week on PBS, as America gets a look at this classic set through the collection that stayed in one family for generations.
