Bidding continues for cards from the “Stockton, NJ Find” of 1914-15 Cracker Jack Baseball cards. The 1914 Christy Mathewson (PSA 2.5) stands at $36,000 while the Joe Jackson is at nearly $23,000 with the buyer’s premium factored in.
A cache of over 170 original cards, recently consigned to Love of the Game Auctions, has had the vintage card market buzzing. The 1914 cards are much more difficult to find than the 1915 set, which was available as a mail-in offer and the majority of the find dated to that first set. Bidding won’t end until Saturday night.
David Seideman of Forbes.com wrote more about the find on Wednesday.
