Description

    Ed Cicotte Signed Index Card. It was an unfortunate decision for Eddie Cicotte to take money to blow the 1919 World Series. Long-remembered as a spot of tarnish on the celebrated past of the game, the starter for the infamous Black Sox squad pitched and fielded terribly en route to losing to the Cincinnati Reds. At the time, Cicotte was one of the finest hurlers in the majors and would have surely gone on to receive a serious look at inclusion into Cooperstown. But autograph seekers would not be so keen on pursuing him after his lifetime ban from the sport. Thus, what we present here remains a terribly tough exemplar, especially in the high quality seen here. Signed in 10/10 black ink, this 3x5" index card has been annotated to "Bob Adams" by Cicotte, as well as his perfect endorsement. Auction LOA from JSA.
