    1919 Charles Comiskey Signed Letter on Chicago White Sox Stationery. Nobody knew the 1919 baseball season would turn into the most tumultuous year in the sport's history. The Chicago Black Sox put a permanent stain on the game, one which will never be forgotten. Some point to penny-pinching owner Charles Comiskey as one of the main factors. It was a miracle any time the White Sox owner pried open his wallet. This typed letter, on White Sox stationery, was sent to William Stewart as an invite to Spring Training and includes instructions to pay for his transportation as he would be reimbursed - we hope. Comiskey closes the letter with a 10/10 black steel fountain pen signature. Regular mailing folds are present and tape marks appear on the upper half. A Boston to Chicago train ticket is tape affixed as well. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
