Shoeless Schmo?
 
Could be Jackson but more likely Schmo. Why is it everyone is Ruth, Cobby or Shoeless when they aren't? This one was a bit of a stretch...

Well at least
 
He did get the shoeless part right...

At first I thought he was being tongue-in-cheek with the listing title. Then I read his description and realized he is just another lunatic.

This kind of thing pisses me off. The kid on the left is clearly "Scabby Shins" Pete. What some people won't do to make a buck...

I mean, it's not not him.

I reckon them two fellers are somebodies, just not Joe.

Barefoot kid kinda resembles Eddie Collins.

The kid peeking out the window in the background is spooky. Oh, and no, that ain't Joe.

Leon, that reminded me of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Bull Durham:

Annie Savoy: I think probably with my love of four-legged creatures and hooves and everything, that in another lifetime I was probably Catherine the Great, or Francis of Assisi. I'm not sure which one. What do you think?

Crash Davis: How come in former lifetimes, everybody is someone famous?

[Annie and Crash pause, then both laugh]

Crash Davis: I mean,

[still laughing]

Crash Davis: how come nobody ever says they were Joe Schmo?

Annie Savoy: [still laughing] Because it doesn't work that way, you fool!
