Description

    1933 All-Star Game Charm Presented to J. Louis Comiskey. Seminal artifact from the inaugural Midsummer Classic digs even closer to the heart of the event with its derivation from the collection of J. Louis Comiskey, who took ownership of the Chicago White Sox and the ballpark that hosted the first All-Star Game upon his father Charles' passing in 1931. Though this first edition of baseball's most celebrated exhibition was not originally conceived as an annual event, the game was such a roaring success that it has endured to this day. Soon after the smoke cleared, young Comiskey was presented this charming little bauble, a gold baseball about the size of a child's gumball, painted with the text "All Star Game, Chicago 1933, Won by American League, J. Louis Comiskey." Wonderful, undamaged condition. Originally sourced from the family of American League president William Harridge's longtime personal secretary, who apparently received the charm personally from Mr. Comiskey.
