Original signed Bill of Sale transferring ownership of a Pool Room and Cigar Store at 1202 E. 55th St. in Chicago, Illinois from “Shoeless” Joe Jackson (1888-1951) to his teammate “Lefty” Claude Williams (1893-1959) for the sum of $1 (and all outstanding debts).

Joe Jackson and his wife Katie decided to move back down South to Savannah, Georgia, prompting the sale of the Pool Room and Cigar Store. The document is notarized and dated October 6th, 1921 and is signed Joe Jackson and C.P. Williams in blue ink.
