Interesting grouping of fan letters mailed to Joe Jackson in the 1940s and 1950s, each requesting autographs and mailed to the banished outfielder.  Interestingly, none of the letters mention the Black Sox or Jackson's banishment - either pro, or con - but all were saved by Jackson regardless.  Jackson's actual signatures are notoriously rare, as he famously was unable to write and thus his post-career autographs were signed by his wife, Katie.  One of the letters, from one Wendren Henton, appears by the postmark to have been written and mailed in October of 1954 - nearly three years after his passing.  Four letters and corresponding envelopes in total.
