minor leaguer Shoeless Joe Jackson five years after being banned from baseball.

minor league player-manager Shoeless Joe Jackson five years after being banned from baseball. Full sized card printed on varnish coated parchment card stock.

Collector score: **** (4  Stars)

Allen Miller Sr. was a printer and a newspaper publisher between 1985 and 2005, the era when most these cards were produced.  Miller Press cards were given away free over the years by the company as sales samples for commercial printing and design jobs.  Possibly the best-written cards ever produced. They are, however, hard to locate due to the microscopic numbers printed. This makes them difficult to collect.
