1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,737.50

This extremely rare and desirable E90-1 American Caramel card features the legendary Joe Jackson, and is one of only a handful of cards of Joe Jackson issued during his playing days. This card dates from extremely early in Joe Jackson's career, when he was a member of Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's, where Joe would play a mere 10 games before Mack traded him to Cleveland. In addition to being one of the key rarities of the classic E90-1 set (which is the most widely collected of all 1910-era caramel issues), this is Jackson's first card as a Major Leaguer and as such is widely considered to be his "Rookie card." Over the years, because of their oversized bottom border design, many E90-1s have been trimmed. This example is unmistakably not trimmed, and even has matching ever-so-slightly askew top and bottom borders. Light creasing allows a grade of only Good, but still a very attractive example of this extremely rare and important card. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $3,737.50
