If you went down the list of the most recognized baseball cards ever produced, you won't have to wait too long until you got to the famed Cracker Jack Joe Jackson. Produced many years before he was implicated and then banned from baseball for his alleged participation in the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal, "Shoeless Joe" was making his appearance on batting leader lists, coming into the 1915 season with a career. 377 batting average, which was higher than even Ty Cobb (.368) at that point in their respective careers. Sent from the Philadelphia Athletics to Cleveland as a "player to be named later" in 1909, Jackson is shown in his Indians uniform but would end up being shipped off to Chicago for three players and $31,500 cash in August of that year, setting in motion the events that led to his infamous ban from baseball. Unlike most other examples at this modest grade of SGC 2, the featured card is very well-centered and offers outstanding eye appeal for the assessment. The post-swing presentation is sharp and concise with a rich red backdrop that appears to have defied father time. The reverse sports a surprisingly bright off-white canvas with admirable bold black print. One of the greatest baseball cards ever made!
