    Description

    1910 Opening of White Sox Park [Comiskey Park] Invitation. It stood for eight decades on West 35th Street in Chicago, originally built as "White Sox Park" but adopting the name of the team's owner within three years. The design was strongly influenced by star Sox pitcher Ed Walsh with pitcher-friendly dimensions that favored defense over offense. No player in history ever reached triple digits in Comiskey Park home runs, Carlton Fisk coming closest with ninety-four.

    This attractive invitation pictures the state-of-the-art facility at bottom, where nearly forty thousand packed in to watch the inaugural contest between the Sox and St. Louis Browns on July 1, 1910. Invitation measures 7x9" and presents with a speckling of age toning but no flaws of significant distraction. Horizontal fold line at center as issued.
