Posted By: <b>Patrick McMenemy</b><p>I recall previous threads which mentioned that your typical Cracker Jack fakes commonly have larger "whiter" borders than the originals. Furthermore, with real Cracker Jacks the color of the borders should blend into the card seamlessly. For example, where the white border meets the white uniform. Take a look at the enlarged scan of this Roger Bresnahan. Curious as to what the avid CJ collectors think about this card. Thanks, Patrick<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31719&item=5123209714&rd=1" target=_new>http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31719&item=5123209714&rd=1</a>

Posted By: <b>Julie</b><p>I never saw a green face on a Cracker Jack before! Is he seasick?<br /><br />As to the difference in color where the border meets the uniform--I don't think the uniform is supposed to be quite white (green seems to be substituted for gray), plus there's a minor stain.
