By Cracky

I received a box of cards from my dad a few weeks ago. He was at a flea market in the Phoenix, AZ area. The box contained hundreds of cards, mostly Topps, mostly from the 1988-1990 timeframe. Some of the cards were very fun to look at. I've taken the Braves and the Mets to head out with some Dinosaurs Attack cards going to a few fellow bloggers.

One fo the fun items in the box was an unopened box of Cracker Jacks from 1993. Inside was a miniature reprint of Joe Jackson. There were 24 cards in this set, issued for the 100th anniversary of the invention of the snack.

I opened the box, found the prize and ditched the snack. It was 16 years old. What did you expect?

So, would the card be worth more still in the box? It would have been MIB (Mint In Box). What about in that little wrapper? The card itself seems to be a bit of a miscut, left to right. Doesn't really matter, for now it proudly sits atop a pile of other cards.
