Great item capturing one of baseball's greatest hitters in his later years. "Shoeless" Joe Jackson played 13 years in the major leagues and had a .356 career average. He was banned from baseball, along with seven teammates, after being accused of intentionally losing the 1919 World Series despite hitting .375. These two pictures feature Joe in casual settings. In one he is holding a trophy for the furthest throw in 1915. In the other he is buying ice cream for young children at Bolt's Drug Store in West Greenville, S.C. Both have "Sport" stamped for Sport Magazine and "Joe Jackson" handwritten on the back. Authenticated and Encapsulated by PSA.
2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the most infamous scandal in sports history. The 1919 World Series was the scene of the crime, the culprits were eight members of the Chicago “Black Sox” and the crime was game fixing.
