Question: What are the differences between the 1914 and 1915 Cracker Jack sets?
Answer: There are a few to note. First, unlike the 1915 issue, the 1914 cards were not released as part of a redemption program to the public. That is why you see so many more high-end examples from 1915 versus 1914. In addition, the 1914 cards were printed on thinner paper stock. Furthermore, the backs of the 1915 cards were printed upside down, unlike the 1914s. Finally, the content of each set is slightly different. Christy Mathewson, for example, has two entirely different poses - one pitching (1914) and one portrait (1915). Another difference in content centers around Hall of Famer Frank Chance, who was only featured in the 1914 set.
