Flashback Product of the Week: 2004 Topps Cracker Jack

Photobucket

With all the popularity of the classic brands, I’m surprised that Topps never brought back 2004 Cracker Jack Baseball.  Each hobby box contains 20 packs with 8 cards per pack, and at least 1 autograph or relic per box on average.  This product is great for those set building fans.  I have always liked the simple Cracker Jack design with its classic red background.  2004 Topps Cracker is full of short-prints that will keep you busy for awhile.  The one thing I like most about it is that you have the chance of pulling out an original 1914/1915 Cracker Jack card.  I also enjoy how many of the autograph/relic cards are smaller in size.

You Learn Something New Everyday

Last night I was reading through my new book about sports cards, and I was excited to learn something new.  I got to the section that talked about the 1914 / 1915 Cracker Jack baseball cards and learned that the cards released in 1914 were packaged inside the actual box of Cracker Jack.  I was also quick to learn that the cards released in 1915 were obtained through a redemption program.  This is probably why cards from 1914 are harder to find in good condition.  I guess you learn something new everyday:)
