    1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy Joe Jackson #82 PSA VG+ 3.5 - Pop One, Two Higher. 1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy Joe Jackson #82 PSA VG+ 3.5 - Pop One, Two Higher. The E135 Collins-McCarthy series used the titled "Baseball's Hall of Fame" some 20-odd years before the inaugural class was chosen for Cooperstown. The year was 1917 when this substantial promotion of 200 subjects made their debut. For a major release, the current supply is painfully inadequate to meet demand. The Collins-McCarthy library consists of an extensive number of volumes, their most famous being the "Zee Nut" cards that appeared in 1911 with annual promotions through 1938. What makes the E135 edition so important is that they are the only Collins-McCarthy cards to showcase Major League players giving fans of the west coast a taste that the east coast has been feasting on. The roster contains such established greats like Ty Cobb, John McGraw, Walter Johnson and Honus Wagner but exciting new talents in George Sisler, Rogers Hornsby, Grover Alexander plus a pitcher in Boston they called "Babe." By pure coincidence, the set features six of "the" eight Black Sox players, none more significant than this man - card #82 Joe Jackson.

    Graded PSA VG+ 3.5, this is the only card at this grade level, there are two rated higher and one lesser. There are only four recorded on the PSA census. There is some totally acceptable corner wear, not surprising as it takes just minimal handling to affect the thin stock. His classic full-figure portrait in the Black White Sox uniform is nicely centered, there is a difficult to see horizontal wrinkle that does break the top layer but does not go across the whole card. There are two extremely small spots of surface chipping also seen mid-thigh. This card is very scarce but not for being a back variant. This is one of Jackson's toughest major release cards.
