Description:
1910 T210 Old Mill Series 8 Joe Jackson PSA Good 2. Seldom is true greatness represented by what appears, at first glance, to be a casual and unassuming portrayal. With coat askew and a posture of apparent indifference to the camera, the young New Orleans player depicted on the face of this red-bordered rarity hardly seems poised to embark on a history-making career. His attire and his bearing cause the observer to wonder if the slender Southern Leaguer was, indeed, "Shoeless" at the time of this image's capture!

In a classic case of appearances having the capacity to deceive, however, this much-coveted collectible merits a recounting of its points of unsurpassed significance. The undisputed key element in a regionally distributed and exhaustive, 640-card set of minor league cards, this T210 Old Mill Cigarettes insert is woefully scarce by any definition. (T210's, owing to their specialized areas of appeal at the time of issue, are seen much less often than cards from the productions that involved established major leaguers.) And, most importantly, the piece reveals a figure who would inspire joy through his on-field heroics during the World War I era. Later, just as dramatically, his actions evoked sadness of the deepest kind. The long-ago activities of Joe Jackson have held a grip on the American psyche for the entirety of the succeeding century.
