Earl Moore (without the "E") was a pitcher of no mean skill for Cleveland in the first seasons of the American League's existence before a scorching comebacker shredded his left foot. He scraped by, with three rough seasons where he was up-and-down between the American and Eastern Leagues before regaining some of his form for the Phillies. He bounced into the Federal League for his final season in 1915, notching 11 wins for the "Buf-Feds. There's some small breaks visible in the front surface "gloss" and product staining here and there, with above average corners on this SGC 1.5. Cracker Jacks are one of a small handful of sets with Federal League players included, with their two years of issue coinciding with the startup league's existence.
