Original studio photograph of the 1907 Victor Mills (Greer, South Carolina) Baseball Team picturing thirteen members of the team including 19-year old "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (1887-1951). Jackson played for various Mill baseball teams from the age of 13, eventually ending up playing semi-professionally with Victor Mills by 1907. The next year, after a stint with the professional Greenville Spinners of the Carolina League, Jackson would make his Major League debut with Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics.
