    Description

    1940 Play Ball Joe Jackson #225 SGC EX 5. The 1940 Play Ball set has long been a favorite among collectors. Play Ball improved upon their simple 1939 design by adding a bottom banner with the player's name, here flanked by glove, bat and catcher's mask graphics. The inclusion of Old Timers was brilliant. If not for such insightful player selection, the offered card would not exist, as "Shoeless" Joe Jackson is featured on card #225. 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. Graded SGC EX 5.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
