Just three months before they became embroiled in scandal, the 1919 Chicago White Sox hosted Ty Cobb and the Tigers in a doubleheader at old Comiskey Park. This is only the second 1919 game program we have handled in 30+ years. Besides the "Eight Men Out" side story, there is a litany of historical connections here. World Series savior Eddie Cicotte went the distance in Game 1, improving his record to 14-4. Then in Game 2, the Sox won in walk-off fashion for the holiday sweep. Other than a couple of tears, this browning booklet rates VG+ overall and is a wonderful piece. The only other regular season 1919 Black Sox program that we know of was once owned by Charlie Sheen. Chicago ended the regular season with an AL-best 88-52 record before famously "throwing" the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. "Shoeless" Joe Jackson went 3-for-7 on the day.
