    1909 E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson PSA Good 2 - A New to the Hobby Example! He's one of the most complicated legends of our National Pastime, an illiterate child laborer from the mills of South Carolina who would emerge as one of the greatest ballplayers the world would ever see. But that popularity would ultimately fall to ignominy as Shoeless Joe was swept up in the greatest scandal in Major League history, sentenced by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis to a term of banishment that is now approaching its centennial. But if baseball itself hasn't yet forgiven Jackson, the majority of baseball historians, and certainly hobbyists in the collectibles realm, have opened their arms and hearts to the famed Black Sox conspirator.

    Offered is one of the most prized relics of the latter, a solid example of his key rookie card from the 1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel series. 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 that jersey that the twenty-year old rookie wears here, a garment that the young South Carolinian wore just ten times in competition before being dealt to the Cleveland Indians.

    Graded PSA Good 2. Just over ninety examples (with qualified cards) appear within the PSA population report. The offered specimen finds itself in the superior half of that thin supply. There are no major creases or wrinkles. Rounded corners and general wear must be forgiven in light of the tremendous scarcity and importance.
