Description



Only 9 Graded by PSA! Oblivious to the turmoil he would eventually be embroiled in following the 1919 World Series, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson stands confidently with “Black Betsy” for this exceedingly scarce 1917 E135 Collins-McCarthy #82 example. With a persona that is shrouded in myth and intrigue, period cardboard representations of the prolific White Sox slugger are in perpetual demand. Graded Good 2 by PSA. This striking black-and-white image is perfectly contrasted with sharp focus placed on the controversial subject. Despite errant centering along with moderate wear along the upper right corner, the overall quality of the 105-year-old canvas is not compromised. Aside from a spot of reverse paper loss, the black text reverse is absent of any serious detractors. For advanced “Black Sox” historians, the offered West Coast relic is a compelling proposition and worthy of serious bidding consideration.
