    Description

    1940 Play Ball Joe Jackson #225 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Play Ball improved upon their 1939 design by adding a banner that displayed the player's name flanked by a glove, bat and catcher's mask. The inclusion of Old Timers was brilliant. If not for such insightful player selection, the offered card would not exist, as "Shoeless" Joe Jackson had not played in the Major Leagues for 20 years. Interestingly enough, the bio on the card's back makes no mention whatsoever of the Black Sox Scandal, and simply notes that Jackson's career ended in 1920. Offered is an eye-catching example with surfaces as clean as the day it was made and corner quality to match. Centering is a mere hairline away from perfection. Graded SGC 88 NM/MT 8. A fresh and clean example with strong eye appeal.
