Great looking autographed autographed baseball card of former Minnesota Twin...Jake Jacobs...DECEASED.
This is a nice looking autographed baseball card, which I had in my own personal collection. Over the past 30 years, I have accumulated a number of autographed baseball and football cards and now I am beginning to part with a few duplicates.
Great looking autographed baseball card signed with a blue Sharpie.
We have acquired these autographed cards either in person, thru the mail or as part of large autograph collection purchases.
In most cases the autographed cards that we have are in excellent condition. If for some reason, you purchase an autographed baseball card and are not satisfied with the condition, you can return it in the same original condition for a full refund.
We are putting together our own autographed card sets for our personal collection and these in inventory are duplicates. We intend on someday obtaining the other cards that we don't have in our own personal collection. The sale of any of these autographed cards will go back into financing our own autographed set collections.

Lamar Gary "Jake" Jacobs (June 9, 1937 – July 26, 2010) was a professional baseball outfielder. He played parts of two seasons in Major League Baseball, 1960 and 1961, Washington Senators and Minnesota Twins. Listed at 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m), 175 lb., he batted and threw right-handed.
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Jacobs attended Boardman High School and graduated from Ohio University. He was signed as a bonus baby non-drafted free agent by the Washington Senators in 1959, being immediately allocated to Class-D Sanford Greyhounds. In his professional debut, Jacobs led his team with a .313 batting average and a 448 slugging percentage, gaining a promotion to the Class-A Charlotte Hornets the next year.
Jacobs spent most of 1960 with Charlotte before joining the Senators in late September, appearing in two games as a pinch hitter and four as a pinch runner. He ascended to Triple-A in 1961, and split the season between the Syracuse Chiefs and Indianapolis Indians before returning to the majors in September for four games with the Minnesota Twins (the Senators had moved to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota during the offseason). He played two more years in the minors, for the Vancouver Mounties in 1962 and Charlotte again in 1963.
In his brief majors career, Jacobs was a .200 hitter (2-for-10) and scored two runs in 10 games. In five minor league seasons, he posted a .277 average in 545 games.
Following his baseball career, Jacobs spent the next 25 years as an insurance salesman for Ohio National Life and attained numerous awards such as a recurrent member of the Million Dollar Round Table. While playing at Indianapolis, he met Janice Oliver, a former Miss Indiana. They were married in 1962 and had four children and eight grandchildren. He was also heavily involved with the YMCA in his native Youngstown, and was a big supporter and trainer for Sports World Ministries.
Jacobs died in Palmetto, Florida, at the age of 73.
