SHOELESS JOE JACKSON 1910 BASEBALL CARD SELLS FOR $492,000

1910 Old Mill (T210) Series 8 - Southern Association Joe Jackson ...

Shoeless Joe Jackson was one of the greatest hitters who ever lived. His career ended at the end of the 1920 season when he was thrown out of baseball at the age of 32- due to the Black Sox scandal. His career batting average was .356. Only two players have a career batting average that is higher- Ty Cobb at .366 and Rogers Hornsby at .358. No doubt if he hadn’t been involved in the scandal he’d be in Baseball’s Hall of Fame.  One of his 1910 cards was recently sold for an incredible $492,000. Imagine that much money for a piece of cardboard. The story of that card below.
