New to Market 1912 Shoeless Joe Jackson Photo at Auction
A previously unknown image of Shoeless Joe Jackson recently auctioned. The 5” x 8 ¾” news photograph shows Jackson, playing for the Cleveland Naps in 1912, just his second full season in the big leagues.
This is a 1919 photograph of Chicago White Sox baseball player Shoeless Joe Jackson. Jackson was allegedly involved in the White Sox World Series Scandal. It has tarnished his reputation as a legendary baseball player and has kept him out of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
