The iconic E90-1 Joe Jackson PSA Authentic rookie card features the incredible central image of “Shoeless” Joe leaning on his fabled “Back Betsy.” No one will argue that while the T206 Wagner has achieved ‘crème of the crop’ status in the baseball card/memorabilia circuit, a presentable Joe Jackson rookie card stakes a claim as one of the most coveted cardboard collectibles and a “must have” for any world-class collection. Since it is the mystique behind the Wagner that has augmented its investment value, one can only wonder how the investment path of the Jackson rookie card will follow throughout the upcoming years. Even before this scandal, Jackson was idolized by a countless number of avid baseball fans, and had already established an iconic relationship with all who followed his superlative career. The immortal Black Betsy bat he leans on in his E90-1 masterpiece will forever transcend time, and serve as a link to Joe Jackson and early 20th century baseball. While the Jackson E90-1 is certainly not as rare as the T206 Wagner, there simply aren't enough surviving examples to satisfy the vintage collecting community. Never could one imagine that a non-HOF inductee rate in popularity with the likes of Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, etc., yet due to the “Black Sox” scandal, his popularity has increased profoundly. Due to his banishment from baseball for allegedly taking part in throwing the 1919 World Series, there are a limited number of vintage Joe Jackson issues, justifying why elite enthusiasts scramble to obtain the few Jackson cards that remain available. Of these cards, none are more desirable than his 1909 American Caramel rookie card that sits near the top of the charts as one of the most formidable cards in the hobby and is included in PSA’s “Top 250 Sports Cards” publication.
