Default Authenticity please

I have run across a handful of old oddball stuff with older cards in the box. Three Stooges cards, vintage Mickey Mouse card, movie star cards, ect.

Unfortunately there was only one of these. I would like to know what your thoughts are about the authenticity and being a genuine Cracker Jack card.

The card measures 2 3/8 by 3 inches. Maybe 3 1/16. Other than the top of the card and a little bit of stain on the back, this card is in really nice condition for a 100+ year old card. The corners are really not bad at all.
Thanks for all input.

i'd say that these are fake... the card stock doesn't look correct nor does the font color...

looks like the "P" of "players" touches his cap in an SGC graded example but in your example it does not. so it doesn't look good.

and also: in SGC graded example there is a bigger gap between "Cracker Jack" and border than in your example.


I will conclude that this is a card that was made to look like an old card.

Okay, I just looked at the one on ebay that has been authenticated. I see what your talking about, there is a distinct difference. On the back of my card, the bottom paragraph is totally different. Man, the ink printing on this card sure looks good. Is there a possibility there are two different versions of Charles Adams?

I am no expert on the 1914 or 1915 cracker jack set. but maybe if you post the issue to the main page of the forum more people will see it.

Well Ben you may not be an expert, but you quickly pointed out a couple of things I overlooked. Thanks so much for your time and opinion.
Very much appreciated.
