Cy Falkenberg jumped to the Indianapolis Hoosiers of the Federal League following a big season with Cleveland in 1913. He certainly delivered, notching 25 wins, albeit using an emery ball. The Hoosiers moved to New Jersey and became the Newark Peppers for 1915, although Cracker Jack had not caught up with the team change when this card was issued showing him with Indy.  Rule changes caught up with Cy though, and with the emery ball outlawed, he struggled.

SGC 3 in grade, this card has the look many a Cracker Jack sports, with some product staining. mostly noticeable on the borders, some fairly minor corner rounding, with a very small amount of paper pulled off the reverse, near what would be the bottom if the card was oriented like the front.
