Pictured is a Joe Jackson game worn jersey from the infamous 1919 season, as displayed in the Hall of Fame. This was part of the Barry Halper collection that was bought by MLB for 8 million dollars and donated to the Hall in 1998. Unfortunately, this is not a 1919 Chicago White Sox jersey and may not have been worn by the Shoeless one.
