    Description

    1923 Chicago White Sox Stock Certificate Signed by Comiskey & Grabiner. Both instrumental figures in the most noteworthy scandal in baseball history, team president Charles Comiskey and his "right hand man," secretary Harry Grabiner have signed off on this beautiful certificate issuing fifty shares to Grabiner himself. Of course Comiskey was the pecunious yet stingy team owner who forced the Eight Men Out to search for other ways to supplement their incomes in October of 1919. And Grabiner was not only the man who personally escorted Shoeless Joe back to Chicago after his trade from Cleveland in 1915, but also the figure to whom Jackson initially confessed his sin following the thrown World Series. Grabiner's signature appears twice here, once as Secretary and the other as the recipient of the stock. These autographs rate 7/10 and 8/10 respectively, while Comiskey's is a solid 9/10. The certificate itself is stamped "Cancelled" across the face and has vertical filing folds that bisect each of the lower signatures, but none of these factors have any noteworthy detrimental effect. Certificate measures 7.5x10" in size, and is matted and framed to final dimensions of 12.5x15". LOA from PSA/DNA.
