Mesmerizing. Disarming. Cryptic. There's a Mona Lisa-like quality to the way Shoeless Joe stares us down with the knowing half-smile of someone harboring a deep dark secret. You could almost imagine this being a picture held in Ray Kinsella's hand as he puzzles over Jackson's legacy in Field of Dreams. It's that iconic. What's more, the image quality is terrific, right down to the clarity of the individual hairs in his unibrow and the crow's-feet around his eyes. A reverse pencil caption, "Joe Jackson / Cleveland," suggests news-service usage, yet there is no sign of the typical handling wear and crop marks, etc. Clean EX condition with a lustrous surface sheen.
