Beautiful, higher-grade pitching pose of Hall of Famer Addie Joss of Cleveland.  Widely regarded as one of the best-liked players among his peers, Joss was also loved as a sportswriter, serving as a sports columnist and editor for the Toledo News-Bee and Cleveland Press.  He also designed an electric scoreboard (known as the Joss Indicator) that was installed at League Park in Cleveland.  In 1911 Joss contracted tuberculosis meningitis and passed away.  Teammates and friends across baseball organized a benefit game - the first "All-star" game - and raised $13,000 to help Joss' family members pay his medical bills.  In 1977 the Hall of Fame waived the eligibility requirement for Joss, and he was elected in 1978.  Today, Joss is the only member of the Hall of Fame to have played fewer than ten seasons. 

A beautiful 70, slightly softer corners at the top are likely what keeps this card out of a higher holder, as the color and clarity of the card is superb.  THe Piedmont 350-460 reverse is also clean and vivid.  

An excellent example of a beloved Hall of Famer from the era's most popular issue.
