No discussion involving the greatest 2nd baseman in baseball history could possibly omit the immortal Eddie Collins who along with Lajoie and Hornsby is arguably the best second sacker to ever play the game. An illustrious member of the 3,000 hit club, Collins not only managed a spectacular .333 lifetime batting average but was also considered the best fielding 2nd baseman of his era. This breathtaking 1915 Cracker Jack Collins PSA 8 offering is the perfect testament to his legacy, with only a paltry 3 PSA copies graded higher! Collin’s stoic portrait image transcends his incredible game day intensity, residing on an impeccable bold red surface with the illustration relatively well-centered between four clean off-white borders. The precision cut edging and corners have maintained their original sharpness, the borders are super clean and the reverse side surface and text are virtually pristine. Eddie Collins spent his entire career building a reputation as one of the game’s greatest and fair-minded players, justifying why this high grade Cracker Jack museum worthy offering serves as the ideal memento synonymous with this iconic 2nd baseman’s remarkable legacy!
