Lot 386: 1st Edition Charles Comiskey Biography
Great 1st edition of Charles Comiskey's biography is flowing with history -- and delectable irony. Start with the title -- Commy" -- which in subsequent years would take on a whole different meaning ultra-capitalist Comiskey no doubt despised. Then there's the pub date -- 1919, the very year Comiskey's penury would lead to the scandal that nearly ruined baseball. Rare tome, in EX condition with mild foxing of the pages, splendid jacket (reinforced), spine tight as a drum.
