Another great card hailing from the 1915 Cracker Jack set is that of pitching great, Walter Johnson. You can make an argument that he's the greatest pitcher of all-time, as he's the only one in the history of baseball to win 400 games, while striking out over 3,000 batters. He's also won the baseball "pitching triple crown" on three separate occasions, dominating the field in wins, ERA, and strikeouts. That is exactly why his memorabilia is in such demand, as the hobby continues to recognize his greatness. Not only was he an exceptionally talented ballplayer, but his baseball cards are also quite rare, which is why The Big Train is high on everyone's want list. There are less than 50 examples of his 1915 Cracker Jack card encapsulated by SGC, with the majority being of lower grade. This particular example, graded an SGC 50, presents beautifully against the black case, with the card's red background exemplifying Johnson's signature pitching pose. This card has near-perfect centering, with light to moderate corner wear, and is free of any staining. It's one of the better cards that we've seen in a while, so don't miss out on a chance to own it! This card actually came from a large collection that we bought a few weeks ago, from a long-time collector in Tennessee. You can read about that story here: The Volunteer Collection.
