    1920 Boston Post Newspaper Regarding 1919 Black Sox Confessions. Gambling was rampant in the 1910's and baseball was no exception to the rule. No greater scandal in baseball has ever occurred as the 1919 Chicago White Sox throwing the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. Although they were named the "Black Sox" initially for their unwashed uniforms, the name later stuck as a nod to their blemished record. This copy of the September 29, 1920 Boston Post is emblazoned with the headline "White Sox Players Confess They 'Threw' World's Series." All eight instigators are pictured on the front. Interestingly, the paper claims Joe Jackson delivered by "puny hits to the infield," despite current beliefs of his stellar performance in the Series. Fragile paper is torn on the bottom left, and is ragged around the edges, but nicely framed to dimensions of 27x31.5" for posterity.
