JOE JACKSON'S FAMOUS "BLACK BETSY" BAT

The one and only "Shoeless" Joe Jackson's pride and joy, the only bat he kept and used throughout his remarkable 13-year career. The bat that helped make Jackson arguably "the greatest natural hitter to play the game," Betsy remained in Jackson's family for over 90 years...until now...
