1919-1921 W514 #15 Joe Jackson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,763

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of "Shoeless Joe" from the 1919-1921 W514 Strip Card issue. This is Jackson's only strip-card appearance and is all the more noteworthy as it was issued at the height of the media's attention to the scandal. The card is blank-backed and measures 1-3/8 x 2-1/2 inches. Jackson is featured in a portrait pose. Bright and crisp, with four square corners, bold colors, and centered a hint to the top (approximately 45/55). This is a sharp-looking card! Ex-Mt appearance but has been downgraded by SGC due to a couple barely noticeable tears on the lower left edge (more noticeable from the reverse). The reverse has a tiny stain on the extreme left edge. This is an one of the few cards of Jackson dating from his playing days. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,763
