Default I Prefer My Cracker Jacks Stained

I must confess I don't even own a Cracker Jack card but have seen several lately. The thing I've noticed is the stained cards with rounded corners sure look good to me for some reason. Much better than the pristine examples. Would love to see some cards and hear others thoughts on the subject. Plus are there other sets in your guys opinions that look better to you used than in better condition? Feel free to share those examples too.

Clint,

I hear you, sir, but you may be better served to post this thread in the discussion forum instead of the BST section.

Couldn't agree more Clint. A 1914 CJ with no staining has a 90% chance of being altered/soaked. Plus Perfection is boring.

It makes no sense why PSA/SGC dock for staining on the 14s.

Right all this talk about not knowing a card is soaked and it should be disclosed.

Its obvious most of the CJs are soaked that have limited stains. People should bid knowing the card was soaked. Soaking isnt even close to wrinkling/paper loss/creasing

Ha, yeah I meant it to be on the main forum. Hopefully Leon can move it for me.

Stains are good.

I will say this though, water doesn't take out caramel stains though. I'm not ignorant enough to think CJs don't get soaked, but those stains are saturated into the thin card stock. A 1914 w/o stains has probably been ALTERED, not soaked.
