    1915 Charles Comiskey Signed Letter. Renowned for both his baseball knowledge and for his frugality, Hall of Fame executive Charles Comiskey must surely have considered the Federal League a painful thorn in his side. Many top players would jump ship from the American and National League during the new League's brief existence, and the increased wages that resulted would have a ripple effect throughout professional baseball. Commy references the upstart organization in this typed letter on Chicago White Sox team stationery, writing in part, "wish to advise you that at the meeting of the National Commission in New York, the rule regarding the immediate reporting of a player from Class AA on purchase by the majors was suspended on account of the Federal League conditions." The closing black fountain pen ink signature is an unimprovably bold 10/10. Original mailing folds, but no other noteworthy condition issues. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
