Description

    1956 Chicago White Sox Old Timers Team Signed Baseball with Walsh, Schalk, Faber. Though his 1919 biography by Gus Axelson was entitled "Commy," the imperious leader of the White Sox had been anything but, with many assigning blame to his tight-fistedness for the scandal of that year's World Series. But with the Hall of Fame executive safely in the ground, an assembly of his greatest past employees returned to Chicago for the enjoyment of the fans in 1956. Presented is a key relic from that happy occasion, an OAL (Harridge) sphere autographed by sixteen. Key signatures include Ed Walsh, Ray Schalk, Red Faber, Moe Berg, Monty Stratton, Dickie Kerr and Muddy Ruel. All autographs are readily legible, ranging in strength from 3/10 to 8/10, with most safely in the middle of that spectrum. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
