This scorecard of the September 23rd, 1920 game between the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians is significant as it is almost the end for the Black Sox. This is the fifth to last game for "Shoeless" Joe Jackson and several other White Sox. They would soon be banned from baseball after being accused of intentionally losing the 1919 World Series in exchange for money. The scorecard, filled out in pencil, shows Jackson went 3 for 4 with two doubles and features Eddie Collins, Buck Weaver, Happy Felsch, and Swede Risberg. A piece of baseball's most infamous era.

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!
