1919 World Series Black Sox Scandal Memorabillia Headed for Auction

The 1919 World Series is the most notorious of all-time, surrounded in scandal whose fallout remains today. But that same controversy makes memorabilia connected to the event intriguing and noteworthy. A handful of items from the events surrounding the 1919 Black Sox Scandal are headed for the auction block at the Goldin Auctions Winter Auction.

Leading the items is a baseball signed by 18 members of the 1920 Chicago White Sox. "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, a tough autograph on its own, is on the sweet spot of the ball. He is one of six players that were eventually banned whose signatures appear on the ball. Other signers include Eddie Collins, Buck Weaver, Eddie Cicotte, Lefty Williams and Swede Risberg. All of the signatures are in black fountain pen. The ball comes authenticated by both PSA/DNA and JSA.

An Eddie Cicotte payroll check from 1919 is also being sold. Cicotte's signature is on the back. It's also signed by White Sox owner Charles Comiskey. The check is encapsulated and graded 8 NM-MT by PSA.

Online bidding starts on January 12 and runs through February 7, 2015.
