In 1911 he made a major leap to stardom, battering American League pitching for 233 hits, 45 doubles, 19 triples, and a .408 batting average. He did not win the batting title as Detroit’s Ty Cobb batted .420, but he set Cleveland team records for hits, average, and outfield assists (32) that still stand. His torrid hitting helped lift the Naps to a third-place finish. Cobb paid tribute to Jackson as the season ended. "Joe is a grand ballplayer and one who will get better and better." There is no denying that he is a better ball player his first year in the big league than anyone ever was. The offered card was issued by Gum Inc. as part of their Play Ball series in 1940, which was twenty years after Joe was banished from the game for accepting a reported $10,000.00 (of which he only got $5000.00) to throw the 1919 World Series. Exceptionally well centered with a pleasing overall appearance with just the slightest bit of toning and ever so slight touches to the bottom two corners. The reverse is well struck with deep bold black inked bio set upon the antique white stock. A handsome card befitting of the NM 7 grade.
