Autograph experts from two different authentication companies closely examined the signature on the photo of Jackson and determined it was the real thing, said Heritage Auctions said.
A baseball bearing Jackson's shaky signature brought $78,000 in 2011. Even a scrap of paper with his autograph sold for $23,100 nearly 25 years ago.
The photo of Jackson that sold Saturday was unknown in the sports memorabilia world until last year.
