Food-Issue Friday: A Cracker Jack Christmas

"We're gonna have a real jim dandy, ginger, peachy, sugar-candy, jamboree, jubilee, cracker-jack Christmas this year." ~ Crackerjack Christmas

Today's subjects were not part of my Christmas gifts this year- I didn't receive any singles, only a few packs of 2014 Topps III Update- but they did arrive a few weeks prior to the holiday season and have been sitting in my queue ever since. It's time to unwrap these very super duper, teenie weenie, hum-dinger, wiz bang, all-star, Cracker Jack baseball cards right here.

1997 Cracker Jack All-Stars #4 Chipper Jones

 Chipper was named to the All-Star team for the first time in his career during the 1996 season. The Braves third baseman went 1-2 in the mid-season classic, scoring a run in the process.

1997 Cracker Jack All-Stars #17 Tom Glavine

Tom Glavine's 1996 All-Star selection was the fourth of his career at that point. Following teammate John Smoltz and Marlin's ace Kevin Brown, Glavine pitched a 1-2-3 fourth inning for the National League team, striking out one (Albert Belle).

And now, it's time for a Christmas favorite... let's listen to Anne Lloyd and The Sandpiper's sing Crackerjack Christmas.

Don't like that version? Well, how about one from Captain Kangaroo?
