Collection of fourteen original Joe Jackson family snapshot photos, all of which originate from Jackson's estate. Ideally, ten of the fourteen photos include Jackson. (Four capture the legendary ballplayer posing alone, while the other six picture him with either family members or friends.) Since these photos were taken long after Jackson's playing career, none are baseball related. Instead they capture Jackson either at work or leisure during the last decade of his life. Photos range in size from 2 x 3.5 inches to 5 x 7 inches, with the size distribution fairly equal (half are in the smaller range, half in the larger range). A few of the photos are trimmed to their current dimensions and three have paper residue on the reverse from having been removed from an album. One photo is mounted on cardboard and another displays a moderate tear (paper loss). In Excellent condition overall. Total: 14 photos.

Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
