    Description

    1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson SGC 40 VG 3. We are proud to offer the true rookie card of the infamous slugger. While his exploits with the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox are well-known, few realize that Jackson actually got his start in the big leagues with Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's in 1908. It is astounding that the American Caramel Company included Jackson in their 120 card issue as none of the much larger tobacco issues of the same years did not feature the young slugger. Jackson only played in 5 games in '08 and '09 before being sent to Cleveland for the 1910 season.

    This is one of the most highly prized cards in our hobby. Not only are E90-1 American Caramel cards much more difficult to find than their tobacco counterparts, but Jackson is a particularly difficult card within the set due to his immense popularity. Like most caramel cards, this one is composed of fragile stock that would have been next-to-impossible to preserve under anything less than optimal conditions. A glance at SGC's Population Report proves that point. Of the 52 examples that have passed through the grading room at SGC, only eight have graded higher than the offered example. This is a strong example for this grade with no creasing whatsoever, bold colors and agreeable corner wear. A very, very faint trace of a moisture stain in the lower left is reflected in the grade. This card would hold up admirably well among its peers as well as those grading one or even two levels higher.
