A splendid and rare memento, this is a great piece for the 100th Anniversary of the Black Sox scandal. This is a 1919 Chicago White Sox celluloid season pass measuring 3.75"x2.5" on card stock. "Geo A O'Neil" is handwritten on front and a ghosted image of Comiskey park adorns the background. The back header reads "White Sox at Comiskey Park, 1919" and gives a schedule for the White Sox home games in 1919. Condition is excellent with original rounded corners and no creases. It presents magnificently.

2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the most infamous scandal in sports history. The 1919 World Series was the scene of the crime, the culprits were eight members of the Chicago “Black Sox” and the crime was game fixing. Shoeless Joe Jackson and seven other members of the “Black Sox” were subsequently banned from baseball three years later and that ban still stands to this day. On this Anniversary, Lelands is privileged to offer a comprehensive collection of memorabilia related to the 1919 World Series teams including a Joe Jackson PSA certified signed document, 1919 World Series tickets, 1919 White Sox season pass, Type I photos, handwritten letters, autographs and much more. Lelands has devoted an entire category in the 2019 Fall Classic to this collection, so go check out “The Black Sox 100th Anniversary Collection” today!
