This extremely rare and desirable E90-1 American Caramel card of the legendary Joe Jackson is one of only a handful of cards of him issued during his playing days and is indisputably recognized as his rookie card. This card is also one of the rarest in the entire E90-1 American Caramel card set. This card is part of an exciting, fresh-to-the-hobby collection consigned to this auction by the family of a Midwestern collector who built his impressive collection over a period of many decades, beginning as a young boy in the 1930s. In recent years the E90-1 American Caramel Joe Jackson has become universally recognized as one of card collecting's most valuable and famous vintage-card rarities. Jackson was always a very rare card in the E90-1 set, but in recent years it has become all the more apparent that this card is truly the key to the set. A few sets of E90-1 have been offered in recent years, but more often than not, they are really sets minus one card: Jackson. This card dates from extremely early in Joe Jackson’s career, when he was a member of Connie Mack’s Philadelphia A’s. Jackson played only ten games with the Athletics before Mack traded him to Cleveland. Light creasing, rounded corners, and a tiny chip missing on the right border allows for a grade of only GOOD 2 by PSA, but this is still a very attractive example of this extremely rare and important card, superior to many others we have seen, and one that (like a low-grade Wagner to T206 collectors) will always be of great interest to E90-1 and Joe Jackson collectors. This is a very attractive, modestly graded example of one of card collecting's legendary cards. Reserve $5,000.
