    Description

    1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson SGC VG 3. From a new to the hobby collection. We are proud to offer the rookie card of baseball's greatest batsmen. 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. It is astounding that the American Caramel Company included Jackson in their 120-card issue as none of the much larger tobacco issues of the same years did not feature the young slugger. Jackson only played in 5 games in '08 and '09 before being sent to Cleveland for the 1910 season which possibly explains but does not excuse what would be a historical entry.

    Graded SGC VG 3. This is one of the most highly prized cards in our hobby. Not only are E90-1 American Caramel cards far more difficult to find than their tobacco counterparts, Jackson is a particularly difficult card within the set due to his immense popularity. A glance at SGC's Population Report proves that point. Only seventy-nine examples that have passed through the grading room at SGC where T206 HoFers . This is a solid, mid-grade example with no heavy creasing with deep, saturated colors and agreeable corner wear. This card would hold up admirably well among its peers as well as those grading one to one & a half levels higher.
