Photo capturing Joe Jackson as a member of the Cleveland Naps. Certified as an original Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA. The photo captures Jackson has he takes his lead off a base. Game-action photos of Joe Jackson are rare, especially those picturing him on the base path. The date stamp "Mar 22 1913" appears twice on the reverse along with a number of handwritten editorial notations, including the name "Joe Jackson" and "Cleve." If this photo were taken on March 22, 1913, it captures Jackson during a spring training game, because the regular season did not begin until April 11th. Although Jackson is best known for his batting ability, he was a superb all-around player; fast afoot and possessing one of the strongest arms in the league. In both 1911 and 1912 he led the Naps in stolen bases, so its no surprise that a cameraman chose to capture him in close-up on the base paths in the spring of 1913. The photo (6 x 9.75 inches) displays a number of light surface wrinkles (most only visible when viewed at certain angles) and a moderate chip in the lower-left corner. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
