One of the key cards from one of the most beautiful card issues ever produced, the Cracker Jack cards - and the product - have captured the imagination of the hobby for a century.  This example of the card of Walter Johnson has been graded GOOD 2 by PSA, the primary condition flaw related to the caramel staining that is ubiquitous to the issue.  The cards positioned in Cracker Jack boxes simply absorbed oils from the caramel and popcorn, which discolored the cards.  In this case, the standing is more pronounced on the reverse.  Additionally, a crease or fold directly across the middle of the card keeps the grade at the GOOD level despite the staining. Still, a scarce and valuable card.
