1915 D350-1 Standard Biscuit #86 Joe Jackson
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,113
Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Presented is an extraordinary rarity of Joe Jackson issued by the Standard Biscuit Company of San Francisco. Standard Biscuit Company cards are very similar to M101-4 and M101-5 Sporting News. Perhaps because they were issued by a bakery company, Jefferson Burdick elected to give this M101-4/5 related issue its own catalog number. D350-1 Standard Biscuits are much rarer than most related issues. The Standard Catalog currently checklists only forty-three different verified known Standard Biscuit subjects, though it is a virtual certainty that all players from the M101-4/5 series were issued. Despite his having played 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. 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 image is bold and crisp. The corners are square with just a hint of wear (a little more in the lower right). Centered approximately 70/30 left to right, and very slightly miscut on the bottom (a sliver of the type of the card number is missing at the bottom due to centering). The card has been downgraded by SGC due to centering. 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/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,113
