1913 WG5 and 1914 WG4 Joe Jackson Game Cards
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,972.00
Two Joe Jackson game cards dating from his playing days with Cleveland, both graded and encapsulated by SGC. These are two of the very few cards ever issued of Joe Jackson. 1) 1913 WG5 National Game (SGC EX 60): Solid Nr/Mt card downgraded by SGC due to...wait...give us a minute...patience please... O.K., we really can't find anything wrong with this card. We grade this card Near Mint. If this card was in a NM-MT holder, we wouldn't give it a second thought. This card is a gem. 2) 1914 WG4 Polo Grounds (SGC VG 40). This must have been "Grade Joe Jackson Playing Cards Incredibly Hard Day" at SGC. A crisp, clean, bright example that at first glance appears Nr/Mt-Mt. Close inspection reveals two very light creases, one near the top border and the other running from the left edge to Jackson's feet. We grade this card Vg-Ex. Two classic cards of the legendary "Shoeless" Joe Jackson. Total 2 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
