    1917 Boston Store Joe Jackson #82 PSA NM 7 - Pop Two, None Higher. There are stars, superstars, Hall of Famers, and then there are legends. The saga of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson is beyond legend, his saga attaining mythical proportions reserved only for deities. Is he revered because we want to believe that "Goliath" is always the bad guy? Is he admired because his humble beginnings afford him a greater degree of compassion and understanding not afforded to the privileged? Or could it be because the love of the game is so engrained in our psyche that it would be sacrilegious to admonish the man who was one of the most gifted natural talents ever to step foot into a batter's box? Fans will debate his status compared to Ty Cobb both as a player and who ranks as the undisputed key entry in any card promotion in which they appear. This offering is for his appearance on card #82 from the very scarce 1917 Boston Store card from 1917 which depicts the mythical athlete in full-figure form in the regal and yes, ironic Black version of the 1917 White Sox uniform.

    Graded PSA NM 7, this card is one of two graded Near Mint by PSA with two other non-qualified example rated VG and VG/EX. A strong example, surfaces are free of any blemishes and stains. The corners show very gentle wear at the outer tips. At the upper right corner there is a surface wrinkle in the top layer. Centering is mildly off-set vertically and horizontally. Few would dispute that high grade Joe Jackson cards are the most highly prized additions to any collection. Acquiring a card from such a scarce promotion makes this opportunity even more enticing and satisfying.
