1910 New Orleans Pelicans Full Ticket - Joe Jackson As Team Member!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $415
Full ticket issued by the New Orleans Base Ball Club for the season of 1910. Encapsulated and certified "Authentic" by SGC. This ticket is significant today because it would have granted the bearer the opportunity to watch a young outfielder for the New Orleans Pelicans by the name of Joe Jackson. 1910 marked the only season "Shoeless Joe" was with New Orleans and it was certainly a memorable one, as he led the Southern Association in batting average (.354), hits (165), and runs (82). The ticket (3.75 x 2 inches), issued for "Game No. 46," displays only a hint of corner wear in the lower right and is otherwise in Near Mint condition. This is one of only a very few pieces of memorabilia we have ever seen relating to Jackson's brief minor league career. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $415
