Presented here is one of the keys to the classic 1914 B18 Blankets issue, the Purple Pennant Joe Jackson, the more-difficult of the two Jackson variations from that remarkable offering. The Blanket presents a solid Near-Mint, jostled only by the lightest staining that hardly detracts from the presentation. Overshadowed by his rival Ty Cobb, Jackson was a colorful star in the middle of a fabulous career, one that would ultimately be derailed by Shakespearean events five years later that would reverberate for 100 years and beyond. He remains the most important – and expensive – non-Hall of Famer of any stripe, and with the legalization of sports betting on almost the 100-year anniversary of his legendary banishment from the game, who knows what lies ahead? This is a marvelous artifact from a player with Hall of Fame clout even from the shadows.
