(LOT 20)
1915 Cracker Jack #103 Joe Jackson PSA 8 NM-MT

SHOELESS JOE!!!... Jackson played for three Major League teams during his 12-year career. He spent 1908–1909 as a member of the Philadelphia Athletics and 1910 with the minor league New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Cleveland Naps at the end of the 1910 season. He remained in Cleveland through the first part of 1915; he played the remainder of the 1915 season through 1920 with the Chicago White Sox. Jackson, who played left field for most of his career, currently has the third-highest career batting average in major league history. In 1911, Jackson hit for a .408 average. It is still the sixth-highest single-season total since 1901, which marked the beginning of the modern era for the sport.

His average that year also set the record for batting average in a single season by a rookie. Babe Ruth said that he modeled his hitting technique after Jackson's. The offered card was issued in 1915. These cards continue to stagger the hobby with increased values. This card of JOE JACKSON is no exception as his cards are always in demand. One of the most important cards in the industry, this card is loaded with bold red color and sharp corners. A high-end PSA 8 NM-MT example is offered here. Shoeless Joe looks ready to hit for the cycle on this card almost 100 years old. Consider that only 2 cards grade higher than this stunning PSA 8 example. Bid to own this great addition to any high end collection!!!

MIN BID $15,000
