Rarest "Shoeless Joe" Jackson Baseball Card in the World Being Offered By Goldin Auctions

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

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.
