Graded PR/FR 1 by PSA. The enigmatic and tragic figure of Joe Jackson is featured on this baseball collectible that was issued by the American Caramel Company and has since been given the designation as both E90-1 by the ACC and as his "rookie" card by the enthusiasts who collect the material. Pictured as a member of Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's, Jackson would play in a grand total of nine games before being sent back to New Orleans and than eventually being traded to Cleveland for light-hitting outfielder Bris Lord. In Cleveland, the uneducated South Carolinian was allowed to flourish with his immense talent and batting prowess, batting an amazing .408 in his first year. The offered card, although somewhat rough in an overall technical sense, does allow enthusiasts a glimpse into the tragic hero. Four moderate to heavily rounded corners frame the image that exhibits several heavy creases, the most noticeable being at the bottom left portion of the card. The registration is astute, which is rare for the issue, and the all important red lips are correctly aligned. In conclusion, a card that offers collectors a true introspect into one of the most captivating and truly tragic figures in the history of the game.
