1916 D350-1 Standard Biscuit #87 Joe Jackson

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $6,960.00

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Only "1 of 1" graded by PSA with no other examples at any level graded by PSA. This is an extraordinary rarity. Standard Biscuit Company cards are very similar to M101-4 and M101-5 Sporting News. Perhaps because they were issued by a bakery company (the Standard Biscuit Company of San Francisco), Jefferson Burdick elected to give this M101-4/5 related issue its own catalog number. D350-1 Standard Biscuits are so rare that the The Standard Catalog lists only thirty-four different subjects known, though it is theoretically possible that all players from the M101-4/5 series could exist. This card #87 Joe Jackson is a new addition to The Standard Catalog checklist of known cards in the Standard Biscuit set. Despite playing for thirteen years before his banishment, there are very few cards of Joe Jackson. He missed being included in the T206 series, and was banished from baseball in 1920 just before the release of the American Caramel and related issues of 1921. This card features Jackson in a classic batting pose photograph by Charles Conlon, which is the same photograph used to produce his Cracker Jack card. This is an outstanding and extremely attractive example in all respects. Standard Biscuit cards (as well as M101-4/5s) have a glossy coated surface which is very susceptible to creasing. This card has no creases. The front is bright and clean. The image is bright and crisp. The corners are square with just a hint of wear. The card has been downgraded to VG-EX 4 by PSA strictly because of the approximately 65/35 L/R centering and an ever-so-slight diamond cut. It is otherwise in Excellent condition. The reverse has an advertisement for Standard Biscuit Company with bold, crisp text. This is a very attractive example of an extreme rarity and would be a worthy addition to any world-class Joe Jackson or rare vintage baseball card collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $6,960.00
