    1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson SGC 20 Fair 1.5. 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. Here we present his rookie card - the 1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel card. 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. We must thank the American Caramel Company for including Jackson in their 120-card promotion as one of the few issues of the era features the young slugger and an even more rare of an opportunity to see Shoeless Joe as a representative of the City of Brotherly Love.

    Graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5. Points against are the area of corner wear and creasing but bolstered by nice colors, no dark staining of surfaces and decent centering. His deep red lip color is even in the right spot.
