Clarification: Shoeless Joe Autograph story

In a story Feb. 9, The Associated Press reported that a century-old image was the first photo signed by Shoeless Joe Jackson to be authenticated by autograph experts, according to Heritage Auctions. The story should have made clear that a Jackson-signed photo, authenticated by a handwriting expert, was sold by Sotheby's in 1999 and that memorabilia experts have since disputed the validity of the signature on that photo.
