You know me.  I’m up for any type of promo.  If you’re planning to attend the National Sports Collectors Convention you might want to take a break from everything and stop by the PSA booth.  They will have on display two of the finest known 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack sets with a combined value of $2 million.  This is to celebrate the upcoming 100th anniversary of the first round of Cracker Jack cards ever produced.  Along with the beautiful display of cards, copies of the new book The Cracker Jack Collection: Baseball’s Prized Players will be available free to those attendees at the show that sign up for the PSA Collectors Club or renew their current membership.  Also on display will be a specially-commissioned painting by renowned sports artist Arthur K. Miller that depicts how a 1915 Babe Ruth Cracker Jack card might have looked.  Babe Ruth was not included in the original 1915 Cracker Jack set.  In addition to the free copy of the Cracker Jack book, the first 500 visitors who sign up for a PSA Collectors Club membership or who renew their membership at the show will receive a free, limited edition fantasy card of Miller’s 1915 Ruth Cracker Jack image.  The cards were specially produced by Memory Lane, Inc. and are housed in PSA holders with consecutively-numbered labels, 1 to 500.  For more information about PSA’s discounts and on-site grading during the National, please visit psacard.com.
