Posted By: <b>Marc S.</b><p>Julie- <BR><BR>The reason that 1915 Cracker Jack's are often worth more than their 1914 counterparts is precisely because they are easier to find.<BR><BR>The 1914's are so hard to find at all, not to mention in high grade, that most advanced/deep-pocketed set collectors avoid the set. On the other hand, building a high grade 1915 CJ set is a function of money more than anything else -- if you have enough, you can put together an overall NM/MT set with enough time and money.<BR><BR>1914's are just so hard overall that they are ignored. Thus, the demand is not there, and the money flocks to the 1915s. There are a lot of vintage issues for which this sort of paradigm applies (e.g. easier to find sets are worth more simply because they are more widely collected) <BR><BR><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/PoetAsylum/pimp.gif"><BR>

Posted By: <b>fkw</b><p>1914 CJ HOFers/Jackson sell for slightly more, because they are mainly collected by HOF collectors (and are far scarcer). I can seen that the 1914 and 1915 commons would sell for about the same, but the demand for the 1915s are far higher because of the facts listed above.... the set collectors. It would take many years (and many $$) for anyone to finish the tough 1914 CJ set (even in mid to low grade), but a 1915 set is not tough at all (if you have the $$). T213-2s and T206 cards have a similar value history. The T213-2 are far far scarcer than the T206 cards, but not many attempt the T213-2 set because of its scarcity (and similarity to T206), while the T206 set is the most collected by the vintage set collectors. A common player T213-2 and T206 card in EXMT condition, would sell for roughly the same price, while the T213-2 card would be dozens of times more scarce. Its all about completing a set. Frank

Posted By: <b>Julie Vognar</b><p>They're hard to find, so they're cheaper. Then why aren't ALL of them cheaper, like the Jackson, for instance? Most 1914 HOFers list for about $600; most 1915 HOFers list for $500. I was just naming some exceptions, brought to my attention when a guy at Tri Star last year asked me for $200 for a vg Cicotte, 1915--it had some ink or som<BR>ething spilled over the words "Cracker Jack." He pointed out the price in the guide, and so I started looking around.<BR><BR>I think it's something even dumber--like that the White Sox are a year closer to 1919. So how does Plank<BR> figure in?<BR><BR>Where else did you address this question?<BR><BR><img src="/images/tongue.gif" height=14 width=14><BR>
