Topps and Cracker Jack Take Care of Unfinished Business
In 1914 and 1915, Cracker Jack created one of the greatest baseball card sets
ever seen. To this day, it remains a mystery why a company so interwoven
with the game of baseball would walk away from producing baseball cards.
Last year, Topps honored the gorgeous 1914-1915 set with a stunning
recreation featuring today's stars.
And this year, Topps has teamed with Cracker Jack to take care of some
unfinished business. Until now, collectors could only imagine what a 1916
set would look like. Look no further.
To carry on the legacy, Topps is pleased to announce 2005 Topps Cracker Jack
The 240-card base set features Veterans, Prospects, Rookies and the World
Series Managers with 40 of the cards being short printed (1:3 packs).
Again, collectors will enjoy the variety of the Original-Sized "1 Per Pack"
240 Cracker Jack RED (1 per pack)
240 Cracker Jack BLUE (#'d to 50)
240 Cracker Jack GRAY (#'d to 25)
240 Cracker Jack WHITE (1 of 1)
All parallels are 2 x 3 inches just like the original Cracker Jack cards.
And here's what you can be found in the SECRET SURPRISE, which is included
in every pack:
**240 Sticker Parallel
**Autographs - including 20 different Secret Surprise Signatures and 11
different Cracker Jack Autographs (#'d to 50) featuring Topps Exclusives
BARRY BONDS (#'d to 25) and ALEX RODRIGUEZ.
**Relics - includes 84 different "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" Relics
featuring exclusives BARRY BONDS and ALEX RODRIGUEZ & six different "1, 2,
3, Strikes Your Out" Relics.
**Original 1914-1915 Cracker Jack cards
Each 9-card pack carries a $3.00 SRP and includes 7 Base Cards, 1 Mini
Parallel and 1 Secret Surprise.
Each box guarantees 2 Memorabilia Cards, which include Relics and
2005 Topps Cracker Jack releases the week of April 4th.
