1913 T200 Fatima Cleveland Americans Including Joe Jackson
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,540.50
Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. The Cleveland Americans team is one of the key cards from the popular T200 Fatima set, because of the inclusion on this team of future "Black Sox" star Joe Jackson. This high-quality tobacco issue remarkably still provides collectors with the ability to acquire a card of Joe Jackson from his playing days without spending a fortune. Issued one card per pack with Fatima cigarettes, the card features a real photograph of the Cleveland Indians team. In addition to Joe Jackson, the team is also highlighted by Hall of Famer Napoleon Lajoie. This technically mid-grade example is far better than most. It has a crystal-clear photograph, square corners, and only a single, very light, lower left corner wrinkle (seen only when held at a certain angle and viewed in extremely bright light), which is exceptional for this issue as T200s are notorious for cracked surfaces due to their brittle crease-prone glossy surface. It is very well centered and shows only three areas of nearly imperceptible chipping along the delicate edges. This is a stunning technically medium-grade example of this key tobacco card featuring the legendary Joe Jackson during his playing days. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,540.50
