In an auction like no other that Goldin Auctions has held, they are offering up one of the rarest baseball cards in the world. They have the only confirmed M101-6 (Felix Mendehlson) card of "Shoeless Joe." Which means only ONE collector can land this once in a lifetime collectible when it comes up for bid in the 2013 Goldin Auctions October Legends auction that is being held from October 7-November 8, 2013. You can find more about the auction at www.GoldinAuctions.com.
The M101-6 cards were issued by Chicago-based sports photographer Felix Mendehlson and offered through The Sporting News from 1917-1919. The cards had some of the era's best photography ever to appear on a baseball card. And this card particular card is another great example of the photography. It shows the well known player in a rare smiling image in a swinging pose holding his "Black Betsy" bat.
Along with the M101-6 Jackson card, Goldin Auctions is also offering other lots featuring the only known George Sisler M101-6 and one of just two known Rogers Hornsby M101-6 cards. All three cards, graded as an SGC 1.5, were recently uncovered in the Midwest.
If any of you are bidding on these and actually win them, please send us a picture of the cards and we will do a post to showcase them. Any of the three above aforementioned cards would be excellent additions to anyone's collection.
