Description

    1919 "The Life Story of Charles A. Comiskey" by Charles Comiskey. "Commy", The Life Story of The Grand Old Roman of Baseball, Charles A. Comiskey as told by G. W. Axelson was issued in 1919 and no doubt before the unfolding of the Black Sox scandal. Charles Comiskey was a speedy first baseman and pennant-winning manager but is best remembered as the founder and longtime owner of the Chicago White Sox. Comiskey played a pivotal role in the early success of the American League, but was marginalized by a feud with long-time AL president Ban Johnson and the Black Sox scandal. Rare hardcover book retaining original dust jacket, book itself remains in Excellent condition.
