(LOT 22)
1915 Cracker Jack #66 Nap Lajoie PSA 8 NM-MT

PACK-FRESH NAP!!! Similar to their striking red backgrounds, high-grade 1915 Cracker Jack baseball cards are currently red hot, justifying why this spectacular PSA 8 Nap Lajoie would be an incredible addition to any sophisticated gathering. Finding NM-MT pre-WWI cards of renowned Hall of Famers is no simple task, with a meager six specimens graded higher on the illustrious PSA Pop Chart! Lajoie will forever be considered one of baseball's greatest second basemen, (along with Hornsby and Collins), with that notion supported by his 3,243 hits, spectacular .338 lifetime batting average and uncanny fielding ability.

His 1901 campaign stands as one of baseball's finest ever, winning the AL Triple Crown while setting a modern-day record with his uncanny .426 batting average. Likewise, his throwing pose on this esteemed offering is nothing short of miraculous, set against a rich red background and exhibiting the finest possible crystal-clear clarity. While the image does favor the left edge, the razor-sharp perimeter, pinpoint corners and near-impeccable surfaces all combine to substantiate the hallowed assessment that leads to a bona fide thumbs-up for this Cooperstown-worthy heirloom!
