The First “Shoeless” Joe Jackson Bat Barrel Card

It’s a thing of beauty. Words can’t describe what you are about to witness if you haven’t seen it already. Bat barrel cards have been made for a number of years now, but no bat barrel will have so much hype around it then this one below, the bat barrel of the one and only, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.


I know I’ve repeated over and over again what beautiful cards you can find in 2011 Panini Prime Cuts baseball. Even my preview of this product showcased some very nice cards. But those all pale in comparison to the beauty and mystique of this one of a kind collectible.

You want to talk about 1 of 1s? This is really the true 1/1. The first and only bat barrel card of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. Once upon a time, a great player. Now, one of the most controversial players in baseball history. A man whom Babe Ruth even modeled his swing after.

It’s still up in the air to whether or not “Shoeless” Joe was part of the 1919 Black Sox scandal. But despite that, he was still one of the greatest outfielders of all time.
