    Description

    Circa 1940 Kenesaw Mountain Landis Signed Magazine Photograph. As a federal judge, Kenesaw Mountain Landis ruled with an iron fist. As the first commissioner of baseball, his firmness did not change. Banning eight Chicago White Sox players in 1920 after they threw the World Series, he steadfastly refused to reinstate them throughout the remainder of his tenure. As one of the key figures in the Black Sox scandal, Landis autographs are always in demand. The offered lot appears to be a photograph cut from a magazine, measuring approximately 3.5x7" but framed to 8x11." The signature is a strong 9/10 in black ink. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
