Pitcher Eddie Cicotte, a knuckleballer won 29 games for baseball's most infamous team, the 1919 Chicago White Sox, and remains one of eight players remembered as the "Black Sox" for conspiring to throw the 1919 World Series. Though acquitted at pubic trail in 1921, Cicotte and his co-conspirators were famously banned from organized baseball for life by then-commissioner Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. 8" x 10" photo exhibits moderate rounding of corners with four pinholes present. Two different personal credit stampings from Charles Conlon appear on verso along with a credit stamp from the Sporting News. Conlon's pencil notations appear at the top, dating the image to 1915. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
