1915 Cracker Jack baseball cards There are 176 cards in this set, each measuring 2-1/4 x 3 inches.

Card fronts show a color illustration of the player surrounded by a white border. Above is the title 'Cracker Jack Ball Players' while below is the player's last name, team, and league.

Card backs feature the card number at top center, followed by a paragraph of text about the player's career, with information about the card set taking up the bottom 40% of the card back.

This set is very similar to the previous year's, but with some changes - certain players were taken out and others added, some new artwork, errors fixed, etc.

The two sets can be distinguished by the ad on the back for the full card set - this year's, 1915's, set had 176 cards, while the ads for the previous year's called for 144. Also, the card backs were printed upside-down relative to the fronts.

Cards were usually obtained from boxes of the candy confection, but an entire set - as well as an album to hold them - could be mailed away for.

Prominent cards in this set include:
30 - Ty Cobb
37 - Grover C. Alexander
57 - Walter Johnson
68 - Honus Wagner
88 - Christy Mathewson
103 - Joe Jackson
